Bill and Budget Tracker

2017 Legislative session

Our bill and budget tracker is a quick look at the progress of the bills we're watching, including budgets as they are released.

Bills are sorted first by housing and homelessness priorities, followed by bills we either support or oppose based on our support issues document. Bills are in numerical order and do not indicate higher or lower priority. As more bills are introduced, this sorting will become more categorized.

Bills listed below relate to both our lead agenda, and the issue areas we support. Click on the bill number to see its progress.

The bill tracker will be updated at least once a week, so check back often! Updated 3/14
