The End is Near
Only about a week remains in the legislative session, the state budget bill has been completed, and the major bills dealing with property taxes and school finance are in final negotiations. The TCAA team is also keeping an eye on the few remaining bills relevant to property owners’ associations. The following bills are still alive in the legislative process, and TCAA will continue monitoring their progress:
One bill that has already made its way to the end of the legislative process and is on its way to the Governor is HB 234 by Rep.

TCAA was successful in amending the bill to limit a property owners’ association’s liability for any injury or activity related to these sales. TCAA will be monitoring how this law is interpreted, enforced, and implemented between now and the 2021 legislative session.
