On May 7, 2018, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed House Bill 595 into law. Now known as Act 17 of 2018, the legislation assigns the investigation and mediation of certain complaints regarding Pennsylvania planned communities, cooperatives, and condominiums to the Office of Attorney General’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. The legislation also recognizes the importance of dispute resolution procedures within each community association. CAI worked closely with the Bill’s prime sponsor, State Representative Rosemary Brown, whose 189th legislative district in Monroe and Pike Counties in the Poconos region, includes a very high concentration of community associations. Representative Brown is my guest today in this podcast where we’ll discuss the reasons behind the Bill and what she hopes to accomplish with the legislation.
