New Legislation Effective on January 1, 2020

We are disappointed that Governor Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 323 (Wieckowski). This means it will be effective on January 1, 2020.

We worked hard to defeat SB 323 and we came very close, especially on the Assembly Floor where the bill passed and was sent to the Governor with NO votes to spare. It would not have been so close without our grassroots efforts. Nor would the bill be as it is written now. Our opposition forced the bill to be amended.

While we’re disappointed in the outcome, we were very successful in reducing some of the bill’s negative implications. Your efforts, in the form of phone calls, letters, e-mails, social media messaging, and in-person visits with legislators, made a big difference – and nearly made all the difference.

As you work to comply with SB 323, please alert us and send a letter to your legislator if your association has new costs due to SB 323. We want to know if your elections are now more complicated, or if another part of your association business has been negatively impacted.

Let’s work closely together to make sure legislators understand the negative consequences SB 323 potentially will have on community associations. To view a complete list of legislators who voted for or against SB 323, click here.
