Current Status: Chaptered

FindHOALaw Quick Summary:

In April 2014, the Governor signed an Executive Order prohibiting associations from fining, or threatening to fine, owners “who comply with water conservation measures.”  AB 2100 (Campos) would codify the Order by amending Civil Code § 4735 to prohibit an association from imposing a fine or assessment against a member for reducing or eliminating watering of vegetation or lawns during any period for which the Governor or a local government has declared a state of emergency due to drought.

*UPDATE: AB 2100 was approved on July 21, 2014 and its changes to the law become effective on July 21, 2014.
