Bill Caption

Relating to persons entitled to a mechanic's lien on real property.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 1909 would add registered interior designers to the list of professionals who may place a mechanic's lien on the property they are involved with, allowing them to secure payment for themselves. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

This supports the property rights of the interior designer to whom payment is due and helps prevent the person who owes an interior designer from shirking the responsibility of making payment in full. For these reasons we support HB 1909.
