Election Law Key Provisions Targeting Homeowners Associations To Be Stripped Out

September 09, 2013

Key provisions of an election law signed by Gov. Jan Brewer in June and targeting homeowners associations will be stripped out of the law, under terms of a legal settlement.  All but one of the provisions affecting HOAs will be nullified, after a suit was filed charging the measure violated a constitutional provision that requires bills to address just one subject. 

Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Zick, whose office normally defends state laws, said the decision was made not to fight this one in court.

The agreement, which is awaiting a judge's signature Monday, clears the way for enactment of the remaining parts of the measure, which alter the regular election laws.
