HB 18-1126 Loses Its Momentum in the House

Written by: on Tuesday, February, 27th, 2018

After gaining momentum and clearing the first two votes in committee, the House of Representatives today killed HB18-1126 by a vote of 29 yea’s and 34 no’s.  The bill, as drafted, raised dogs to the same type of protections afforded to political expression, the flag of the United States of America, drought tolerant vegetation and renewable energy devices.  The bill, which singled out homeowners and condominium associations, would have prohibited an association, as a matter of public policy, from adopting restrictions and rules to prohibit dogs based upon size, weight and breed.   Stay tuned as we find out how the legislature will resolve other bills that impact owners and communities.
