The substantive Arizona homeowner reform bill, HB 2052, has been assigned to the Senate GOV committee. No hearing date has yet been assigned. In short,
“Overview Stipulates that a unit owner’s association or a planned community association (association) may not prohibit a unit owner or member (member) from peacefully assembling and using private or common elements of the community.”
Effective presence in support of legislation requires immediate support to the assigned committee to let the members know before the public hearing. It is this private committee time where decisions are made. This advice can be found in Colorado’s Morgan Carroll’ book and discussed in Colorado senator’s guide to effective HOA legislation.
Many may not remember Ugenti’s conduct in 2013 but I have the hope that justice will prevail for homeowner with 2052.
“The loss of these perceived benefits lies not in this victory, but in the acts of Rep. Ugenti who is responsible for attaching, at the last legislative session, her defeated HB 2371 to SB 1454. SB 1454 now became a bill with two subjects in violation of the constitution.”
