HB 385 which defines both “correspondence” and “sold” in the real estate license law was Truly Agreed and Finally Passed by the Senate around 6:45 PM last night. A copy of the perfected version is attached here.
The bill, introduced by Rep. Nate Walker and handled in the Senate by Sen. Kurt Schaefer passed the House by a vote of 150 to 3 and the Senate by a vote of 34/0. It now goes to the Governor. If approved it will become effective on August 28, 2015.
I see no reason for the Governor to not approve the bill, it offers some common sense solutions to protect licensees and others from potentially burdensome regulation.
It’s worth noting the Rep. Walker was one of those candidates opposed by Club for Growth in the last primary. RPAC-Missouri supported Rep. Walker and he won that primary, even though Club for Growth spend nearly $300,000 to oppose him. Sen. Schaefer was also strongly supported by RPAC-Missouri in his General Election in 2012 being the first Republican senator reelected in Boone County ever and the first Republican elected in over 40 years.
Sen. Schaefer, the leading candidate for the Republican nomination for Attorney General in the 2016 election will join us on our Telephone Town Hall on May 20.
By supporting common sense candidates who understand and support the real estate industry we are able to make Missouri a better place to live and work.
Without your investment in RPAC this would not be possible. Thanks for being involved, with your help we can make a difference.
