Sen. West’s SB 142 clears committee

SB 142, Senator West’s omnibus bill to address HOA abuses in Texas, cleared his committee this afternoon and will head to the Senate floor next week for possible consideration.  Few testified in favor or against the bill; most testified “on” it as resource witnesses.  The bill makes improvements in many areas for homeowners, but leaves some exemptions, holes and issues for HOAs to abuse.  It is certainly something to build on, but undoubtedly the builder and pro HOA groups will continue to work on it to weaken it further.  The text of the bill coming out of committee is here.
