Attended CRAAR Government Affairs meeting this morning

We attended the Cedar Rapids Area Association of Realtors Government Affairs meeting this morning.

Listen to fellow Realtors speak about the City's Open House #2: Urban Design Concepts. After the meeting, we searched the City web site and noticed this PDF file on SMID Commission strategy. The City of Cedar Rapids is planning an Open House on Tuesday, February 23, 2010.

During today's meeting Lobbyist Jen Kingland gave an update on a variety of State Legislative issues, after last week's funnel date. Discussion included a variety of legislative issues, but was not limited to Flood Disclosure, CO2 mandates, Private Transfer Fees, handling of felonies, Mechanic Liens, Fire Sprinklers, Escrow licensing, Right to Work and Fair Share, SSB 3176, Landlord eviction legislation, Training rules for Lead, Radon, Meth disclosure and we closed with the texting while driving legislation.
