Legislative Alert: Contact Your State Senator Today

Mar 24, 2016

CAI's Pennsylvania Legislative Action Committee needs your help to encourage the State Senate to take up House Bill 1340. Details on the Bill are below. 

House Bill 1340: Leasing Restrictions & Lien for Assessments

CAI Supports this Bill. Introduced and referred to the House Urban Affairs Committee on Monday, June 15, 2015 by Rep. Martina White (R-Philadelphia): This legislation amends the Pennsylvania Uniform Planned Community Act (UPCA) and the Uniform Condominium Act (UCA) under Title 68 (Real and Personal Property) to ensure that community associations are not affected negatively by a recent U.S. Court of Appeals decision and new federal mortgage underwriting guidelines. Click here for a full explanation of the Bill.

This is a very non-controversial piece of legislation. So much so that the Bill passed the state House of Representatives on June 30, 2015 without a single dissenting vote. The Bill then moved to the Senate where it has been languishing for months without any further action. The Bill has been read twice in the Senate and needs one final vote before it heads to the Governor's desk for signature. To help encourage the Senate to take up the Bill, CAI is calling upon all members who live in the following counties and Senatorial districts to contact the Senators listed below. Please call, fax, tweet or email the Senators listed below and ask them to ask Senate Leadership to schedule House Bill 1340 for a final vote. IMPORTANT: You should only contact the Senators on list below if you live in one of these Senate Districts. If you are not sure who your state senator is, please click here to find your legislators.
