HB 2556 is stuck in the Senate Rules Committee and has not been pulled to the floor.
This bill provides that an applicant for licensure as an appraisal management company must file and maintain a surety bond of at least $100,000. There has been no opposition testimony on the bill. The reasons it has not yet been pulled to the floor for a vote are unclear, but we only have until Friday night to get it pulled from Rules and voted out of the Senate.

Please contact your WA State Legislature Senators and Senate Rules Committee - you can do this either via their office phone numbers or the Legislative Hotline at 1-800-562-6000, or by using their email.
Please ask them to "Please pull HB 2566, An act relating to maintenance of a surety bond for appraisal management companies, from Rules Committee and vote YES on the Senate floor."
A Senator can also be asked to "include the bill within a package pull.” (That is a group of bills all pulled from Rules to the Senate floor at one time.)
