An a vote of 11 to 1, the House Appropriations Committee just approved with a favorable recommendation to the full House HB 1277 which was amended in the House Business Committee.  We expect the House to take up the bill quickly and approve it on 2nd and 3rd readings.  Given the fact that only one Republican voted against the bill in the Appropriations Committee, it will be interesting to see whether we have a party line vote on a bill which would require the licensure of community association managers and management companies.

As always, stay tuned to this blog for timely updates on important legislation impacting HOAs!
