The Nevada Legislature begins on
February 6, 2017. LAC is currently in the process of reviewing bills drafts and
meeting with legislators. So far, there
are four bill drafts that would revise NRS Chapter 116. LAC is waiting to review
the final language Following is what LAC
knows at this time:
BDR 470 – This bill draft was submitted by
Senator Harris on behalf of CAMEO and NACM to revise provisions related to
community managers. LAC understands that
the bill will include the same language proposed in Assemblymember Spiegel’s
bill from last session. LAC recently
worked with Senator Harris to amend this bill to insert language related to
director’s and officer’s insurance and voting procedures.
BDR 554 – This bill draft was submitted on
behalf of the Nevada Sunset Subcommittee and LAC understands it will require
the homeowner members on the Common-Interest Community and Condominium Commission
to live in an association.
BDR 681 – This bill draft was submitted by
Senator Woodhouse and LAC is still waiting to see the language.
BDR 41 – This bill draft was submitted by Assemblymember
Gardner who lost his election in November.
It is unknown what was included in this bill and if another legislator
will move the bill forward.
LAC is also monitoring
approximately 20 additional bills to confirm whether they will impact
common-interest communities. The subjects
of these bills include: real property, NRED, energy, feral cats, foreclosures,
liens, public notices, solar gardens, medical homes, leases and excess proceeds
from tax sales. Once these bills are
released, LAC will review each one and determine whether they should be added
to our tracking list.
