House Study Bill 13 is now HF 356. While it may need amending, something more fair and balanced is likely to find strong support from all Representatives & Senators
The House Judiciary Committee voted 12-8 to pass HSB13 our of committee and on to floor debate Tuesday, February 26. Unfortunately, the vote went right down party lines. We knew there was concern from some legislators as they believe elimination of the 2-year statute of limitation for a judgment for rent implied the validity was open-ended for collection, so they chose not to support it.
Our perspective is the “Implied 10 years” should become a “Statutory 10 years”.

The vote on HSB9 Thursday afternoon, Feb 7, was 17-4, showing strong bipartisan support for this bill. The bill now comes out of the House Judiciary Committee and is eligible for floor debate.
