SPCs on the Hill
See the bullet points below for three important bills to the real estate industry that have recently been filed. Plans are underway for our advocacy team to promote and advance these bills. We will keep you abreast of important updates as they occur. We encourage you to reach out to your GADs for more information about our upcoming state legislative visits. These virtual visits will provide you an opportunity to be involved in advocacy efforts on each of these three bills.
- SB 349/HB 401 – Increases Housing Opportunities by reforming Local Government Zoning Authority through changes and clarifications to the Zoning Statutes.
- SB 680 – Remote Online Notary Bill is a bill that shifts the mortgage industry from an in-person, paper heavy process to a streamlined, consumer-friendly technology based one, especially due to COVID.
- SB 363/HB 367 - Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act (UPHPA) helps preserve family wealth passed to the next generation in the form of real property.
The dates scheduled for this year’s virtual legislative meetings are from April 29 – May 7. For additional information or if you have any questions, please contact Troi Bachmann or your local GAD.
