Current Washington state law requires a 30 day notice to raise rent.  Within the Seattle City limits a 60 day notice is required for an increase of 10% or more.  Under proposed legislation the requirement state wide would be for a 90 day notice of any rent increase of more than 10%.  The goal of the legislation is to give tenants more time to find alternative housing if rent is raised substantially.
