n support of H.B. 408 – the “Super Lien,” and S.B. 187 – the Ohio Planned Community Act, several staff members and lawyers from Kaman and Cusimano, LLC stormed the Ohio State House last week in support of these two essential pieces of community association legislation. Attorney Darcy Mehling Good met with numerous legislators on an individual basis and Attorney David w Kaman testified before the House’s Civil and Commercial Law Committee. Attorneys Kaman and Good answered numerous questions in an attempt to try and garner as much support for both bills as possible.
While S.B. 187 enjoys bipartisan support in the House after it was passed 29-1 in the Senate, H.B. 408 still faces strong opposition from the banking lobby and many Republicans. As 15 other states have shown, however, supporting America’s community associations through a “Super Lien” is a not and should not be a partisan issue. Therefore, if you have not yet done so, please express your support for H.B. 187 to your local State Representative, and urge him or her to vote yes!
