The First Session of the 147th General Assembly Has Ended!
The first half of the 147th General Assembly ended Monday morning around 1:45am. DAR was there until the very end to make sure that no legislation passed that will hurt your business. The only bill that affected REALTORS was the last bill considered by the House, Senate Concurrent Resolution #34, that establishes a “Green and Better Building Advisory Committee.” DAR and the Builder's Association worked together to make sure that in January, when the second half of the session begins, an amendment will be added to the resolution that will give DAR and the Builder's representation on the Committee. You can read SCR 34 HERE
