Arizona Legislature Adjourns Early on April 20

2011-04-27

Issue Brief

Despite a relatively short legislative session in 2011, Arizona still considered its share of controversial bills, although fortunately few had impact on the timeshare industry. 

Impact

While several HOA-related bills were enacted in 2011, timeshare associations are exempt from most of the provisions.  Other bills of interest included those relating to municipal taxes, numerous "tax corrections," tax deed land sales, real estate broker education requirements, subdivisions, and city/town development fees.

Position/Call to Action

An ARDA and ARDA-ROC report of bills that have been signed by Governor Jan Brewer or await her signature as of April 25, 2011 may be found here.  Also included in the report are several controversial bills that, despite numerous amendments, ultimately failed to be enacted.  This report will be updated in a few weeks as additional bills are signed by the Governor.  Unless otherwise specified in the enacted bills, the laws will take effect on July 20, 2011.  Despite adjournment, the Legislature often holds interim hearings on issues of interest.  Both the Governor's Office and Legislature wish to address personnel reform, which may be addressed in a late summer special session.  It is also possible that tort reform will also be included in the session.
