Rental property owners saw the pendulum take a big swing toward balance on March 25th of this week. The House voted 97-0 (three members absent) to pass the bill, with the amendment H-1191.
Promptly assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Chairmain Hogg subsequently assigned the bill to a subcommittee. Senator Rich Taylor is Chair (Lee, Henry, and a little of Washington, Jefferson), Sen. Nancy Boettger (Shelby, Monona, Crawford, Harrison, Ida, Woodbury), and Sen. Wally Horn (Linn) serve on the this committee.
We are hoping for thoughtful study and a quick approval, prior to the April 5th deadline for the second funnel.
It’s encouraging to see a vote of 21-0 for a study bill coming out of committee. When the House Judiciary Committee voted yesterday, Joe Kelly posted the results nearly immediately. “Good news, it passed! Bad news, we have a long way to go!” (paraphrased).
In an interview with Joe Kelly on Friday, March 1st, Joe relates that the next couple of weeks are critical for our three main bills before the house – HF 184 (Occupancy), HF 356 (Judgments), and HSB 28 (Revisions to 562A).
