On a 3 to 2 vote, the Senate Judiciary Committee just postponed idefinitely (which means the bill is dead for this legislative session) Senate Bill 52 which addressed construction defects in transit-oriented developments.  The bill as introduced, would have created significant unintended costs for homeowner associations when pursuing construction defect claims.  While the bill is dead for this session, we do expect the issue to remain on the drawing board and to be addressed during the 2014 legislative session.
