The California Legislature returns to the Capitol today to reconvene on bills. While CAI-CLAC has been successful at influencing and amending 2018 legislation, there is still work to be done on SB 1265.
The GOOD news: SB 1265 will be amended to delete the ability of someone to copy the signed envelopes, mitigating privacy and fraud concerns.
The BAD News: If passed, SB 1265 will increase costs to conduct an Association Board election due to unnecessary restrictions to serve. As written, the bill adds deadlines, notices and other requirements to the election process making it more complicated and more likely mistakes will happen – resulting in more litigation costs! There is simply no justification for government to impose higher costs to Homeowner Association members. We strongly believe that SB 1265 limits association’s ability to self-govern by mandating how we conduct community association elections.
