REALTORS® – 3 reasons to read last Friday’s IAR State Capitol Report

The IAR renewed a Call for Action on Senate Bill 1380, saw its efforts to reform procedures and costs for foreclosed condos stalled, while the House extended its committee deadline for consideration of Senate bills to this Friday, according to the IAR State Capitol Report.

IAR members are urged to contact their senators, if they have not already done so, and ask for a NO vote on Senate Bill 1380 about municipal liens. Even though this bill was defeated on April 23 by a Senate vote, the sponsor used a parliamentary procedure to keep the bill on the Senate calendar.

Please read today’s State Capitol Report for details and for other news, such as:

  • An Illinois Supreme Court ruling against pension legislation for public employees;
  • Senate Bill 780, otherwise known as the Cook County Homestead Bill;
  • House Bill 228 regarding a moratorium on creation of new units of local government;
