We made more progress this week at the State Capitol. SB 1123 by Sen. David and Rep. Kirby unanimously passed the House Economic Development, Commerce and Real Estate Committee. The measure is an effort to provide a statutory definition of “property management”.
A House Appropriations and Budget Subcommittee unanimously passed OAR’s SB 1245, which assures counties cannot charge a “transfer fee” on real estate transactions in order to fund floodplain management programs. It now goes to the full committee.
Check out the conversation about these and other issues OAR is in front of at the capitol!
