OLYMPIA — Landlords will no longer be able to discriminate against tenants who use federal, state or locally issued benefits to pay their rent if Gov. Jay Inslee signs a bill approved by the Legislature Tuesday night.

House Bill 2578, sponsored by Rep. Marcus Riccelli, D-Spokane, would make it illegal for a landlord to deny housing to a present or potential tenant relying on income from such programs such as Social Security, veterans benefits and housing vouchers.
