Dear Cyber Followers:

This week’s Legislative Update 

It has been a slow year for community associations so far in the Arizona legislature. One technical correction bill was passed with minimal impact to community associations (SB1060). Governor Ducey vetoed a bill that would prohibit cumulative voting in community associations (HB2321) and his veto letter indicated that he didn’t think that the government’s role was to regulate how homeowners associations vote. After years of regulation of community associations by the Arizona Legislature, this was a breath of fresh air! For a copy of the Governor’s Veto letter, please click here:

Our firm is closely monitoring HB2411 (further regulating open meetings in a community association) which will likely move to the Governor in the next week or so. A copy of the fact sheet on this bill (updated on 4/181/7) is below:
