Bill Analysis

HB 1072 seeks to allow individuals convicted of a felony or crime of moral turpitude to serve as a board member of a property owners' association if its been 20 years since they've been convicted. 

Currently individuals convicted of a felony or crime of moral turpitude are not allowed to serve as a board member.

Vote Recommendation Notes

5/23 Update:

This legislation has not substantively changed since our last analysis, we remain in support of HB 1072.

The Senate sponsor is Sen. Ellis.

First chamber recommendation is below:

While its to be seen whether or not state government should regulate property owners' associations, HB 1072 would make a small advancement in limiting state regulation over who may serve on the associations' board of directors. HB 1072 will help property owners protect and serve their local associations despite events deep in their past. We support this legislation.
