The 2014 spring session of the Illinois General Assembly was a busy one and the Illinois Association of REALTORS® (IAR) team of lobbyists and our 41,000 members worked to stop bad policy, alter flawed legislation, advocate IAR initiatives and promote the interests of our membership, their clients and customers.
The 2014 Legislative Scorecard highlights 14 notable victories including:
- SB 3044 passed protecting the REALTOR®’s ability to provide BPOs/CMAs
- SB 2664 passed, limiting the amount of money a prospective buyer of a foreclosed condo would pay for past due costs and legal fees.
- The State Fire Marshal released a formal pledge to work with stakeholders (including REALTORS®) on any future fire sprinkler mandate initiatives.
- A REALTOR®-supported executive order created a NEW Division of Real Estate within IDFPR.
