Governor Doug Ducey on Friday signed legislation that requires more transparency in home owner association [HOA] meetings by mandating public comment before votes and setting up tighter rules for public meeting notices.
The governor had avowed his administration would not be in the business of regulating HOAs and he had earlier vetoed a bill banning cumulative voting in HOAs.
Ducey said after his veto of House Bill 2321 that it would be a slippery slope for state government to get involved in how associations are run.
“I do not believe that government should micromanage the operations of homeowners’ associations,” he said in a signing letter. “I have signed H.B.
2411, however, because it promotes transparency and participation for all residents in homeowners’ association governance.”
