Governor Polis' Veto Could Mean Great Relief to Homeowners
FORT COLLINS, COLORADO –June 6, 2019 - House Bill 19-1212 was passed by Congress this legislative session, maintaining HOA manager licensing for one more year during which a program review was to take place. This was viewed by many as a positive step for those with concerns regarding HOAs' and managers' practices.
However, on May 31, 2019, Governor Polis vetoed this bill. Governor Polis provided a detailed explanation for the veto, praising the House for their work, but explaining he didn't believe the Bill went deep enough. The Governor also issued an Executive Order directing DORA to complete, by January 1, 2020, a comprehensive review of community association managers and HOAs to include: review of licensure, approaches to increase transparency within HOA activities, methods to reduce costs that burden the homeowners, and strategies to increase homeowner rights and protections.
Governor Polis emphasized his intentions to protect consumer safety in Colorado. We applaud Colorado's Congress and Governor for their commitment to protect the homeowner and reduce the cost of homeownership in the state!
