Description

The bill adds discrimination based on source of income as a type
of unfair housing practice. Source of income is defined to include any
source of money paid directly, indirectly, or on behalf of a person,
including income from any lawful profession or from any government or
private assistance, grant, or loan program.
A person is prohibited from refusing to rent, lease, show for rent

or lease, or transmit an offer to rent or lease housing based on a person's
source of income. In addition, a person cannot discriminate in the terms
or conditions of a rental agreement against another person based on
source of income, or based upon the person's participation in a 3rd-party
contract required as a condition of receiving public housing assistance. A
person cannot include in any advertisement for the rent or lease of
housing any limitation or preference based on source of income, or to use
representations related to a person's source of income to induce another
person to rent or lease property. The restrictions do not apply to a landlord
with 3 or fewer rental units.
