Morgan Carroll's HOA Bill Passes Committee

A bill that would require HOAs to assure that disputes with members are decided by a neutral party and authorize the use of mediation passed its first test in the House of Representatives Thursday.

HB 1135 drew no opposition on second and preliminary reading by the full chamber. It had sailed through the House Local Government committee with a unanimous vote Wednesday.

The bill is sponsored by Rep. Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora, and Sens. Bob Hagedorn and Suzanne Williams, D-Aurora.

The House is scheduled to vote on final adoption of the bill Friday. If approved, it will head to the Senate for consideration.
