AB 2416 Killed in the Senate
Big Win for REALTORS®
Please Thank Senator Liu and Senator Torres
C.A.R. has been OPPOSING AB 2416 (Stone), a bill that creates a new kind of lien for wage claim disputes. C.A.R. opposed AB 2416 because it denies due process to the owner of the property, and unnecessarily clouds title. AB 2416 failed in the Senate Thursday, August 28th on a bi-partisan vote, but was eligible to for another vote on Friday, August 29th, the last day the Legislature was in session this year. AB 2416 required 21 Yes votes to pass the Senate. It only received 13. The proponents were unable to muster enough votes to bring the bill up on August 29th, and the bill died as the legislative session ended.
REALTOR® activism played a critical role in defeating what was a very bad piece of legislation. While C.A.R. worked as part of a coalition to oppose the bill, it was the thousands of REALTOR® calls, Tweets and Facebook updates that made the difference.
Thank you to everyone who responded to the Red Alert!
Senator Liu and Senator Torres voted NO or did not vote (essentially the same thing as a NO vote) on AB 2416.
