HB 1343 just cleared the Senate Business, Labor & Technology Committee with unanimous bipartisan support.  The bill is now headed to the Senate Appropriations Committee where we expect it to be approved and then on to the full Senate for consideration.

HB 1343 was amended in Committee this morning to clarify that independent contractors and employees of HOAs who only provide clerical, ministerial, accounting or maintenance functions are not required to be licensed as community association managers.  Obviously, these amendments make a great deal of practical sense.

We expect the full Senate to approve HB 1343 as amended in Committee and the full House to concur with the amendments prior to close of this 2015 legislative session.  Stayed tuned to this blog for updates as HB 1343 proceeds through the final phases of the legislative process!
