Dear Cyber Followers:
Today is going to be an exciting day in the Arizona State Legislature! The House will be voting on the fate of SB1452 (CONDOMINIUMS AND PLANNED COMMUNITIES, CONFLICT OF INTEREST, BOARD REMOVAL PROCESS) and SB1453 (CONDOMINIUMS AND PLANNED COMMUNITIES; ENFORCEMENT, ELECTIONS, AND MEETINGS). We will notify you of any developments on these two important bills for our industry.
As of March 30, 2015, the following bills have been signed by Governor Ducey:
HB2032 (OFFICE OF ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS; CONTINUATION);
HB2084 (CONDOMINIUMS; PLANNED COMMUNITIES; ASSOCIATIONS; DISCLOSURES);
HB2578 (PLANNED COMMUNITIES, CONDOMINIUMS CONSTRUCTION DEFECT CLAIMS); and
SB1048 (VEXATIOUS LITIGANTS; FEES; COSTS; DESIGNATION)
SB1091 (PLANNED COMMUNITIES, BOARD REMOVAL) has been transmitted to Governor Ducey for signature and it is anticipated the Governor will sign SB1091 this week.
It is unclear what is going to happen regarding HB2614 (PLANNED COMMUNITIES; ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW). HB2614 Failed on a Third Read in the Senate on 3/24/15, however, Senator Yarbrough made a Motion to Continue and that Motion carried.
We continue to watch pending bills and will post changes on our website, under Publications, 2015 Legislative Update Summary. Additionally, once the legislature closes we will post the final legislative update. Our 2015 Legislative Update Cheat Sheet will soon follow. Watch for it.
We will keep you posted on any developments this week. It is anticipated that the legislature may close later this week or early next week, so, stay tuned!
