Following an implosion in the House last night over legislation on civil unions that ultimately killed over 30 other bills, CAI’s Colorado Legislative Action Committee ("CLAC") became concerned about whether time would run out on this last day of the legislative session to take up the the HOA records bill – HB 1237. With the sands in the hourglass running low, we are pleased to report that the House has just concurred with the Senate amendments to HB 1237 and voted to repass the bill! That means HB 1237 will be prepared and sent over to Governor Hickenlooper for action. Since the bill was unanimously passed by the House and Senate on 3rd reading and is not controversial in nature, we expect Governor Hickenlooper to sign HB 1237 into law which will become effective on January 1, 2013.
CLAC will be partnering with the Rocky Mountain and Southern Colorado Chapters of CAI to present classes on the new law. Managers, management company representatives and boards of HOAs will want to attend these classes to be prepared to comply with HB 1237 by the first of the year. Keep an eye on this blog and the Rocky Mountain and Southern Colorado Chapter websites for information on these classes as they are scheduled.
We will also be providing a synopsis of HB 1237 on this blog in the near future!
