Rep. Andrew Barkis joins TVW’s Inside Olympia to to discuss the top three housing policies of the 2023 legislative session

Rep. Andrew Barkis, R-Olympia, joins host Austin Jenkins and Rep. Strom Peterson, D-Edmonds, on TVW’s Inside Olympia to discuss several housing solutions to help solve the supply issue curbing much of Washington state. During their 60-minute conversation, Barkis talks about priorities and how the Legislature has allowed the housing problem to get to the level it’s at today. The main question to be answered is: Where can we streamline our efforts to reduce costs?

They also dive into the discussion on the three main policies before the Legislature this session: House Bill 1245 on lot splitting (sponsored by Barkis), House Bill 1337 on accessory dwelling units, and House Bill 1110 on middle housing.
