Governer Polis VETOES Manager Licensing Bill

HB 1212, the bill introduced to Recreate Homeowners’ Association Community Manager Licensing was vetoed by Governor Polis late Friday night. Because of this action, the Community Manager Licensing program will no longer exist as of June 30, 2019.

Governor Polis stated in his veto letter that “Our hope is that this will allow more people to work, to access various services and to make sure that licenses protect consumers from harm – not industry insiders from competition.” Additionally, he argued that certification of occupational skills “is best done by guilds, unions and professional associations” rather than the state and that state licensing is only appropriate in “cases that are compelling for consumer safety and economic reasons.”
