CAR Vice President for Public Policy Ted Leighty will join the executive committee of HOA, an organization that is advocating for the construction defects legislation to encourage builders to develop more condominiums and townhomes. Earlier this week CAR’s political action committee (CARPAC) approved a $10,000 request, which will allow Leighty to join HOA’s executive committee. A bill supported by HOA and CAR died late in the 2014 legislative session. Senator Jessie Ulibarri (Adams County), has already agreed to sponsor the bill again next year. The recent decision by the City of Lakewood City Council to pass local construction defects legislation (that will no doubt be challenged in court) will help to pressure the legislature to pass the bill in 2015.
