The Texas Community Association Advocates (TCAA) legislative team has turned its focus to the Texas Legislature, which began its 87th Regular Legislative Session on January 12, 2021. TCAA looks forward to another productive and successful session for community associations and the homeowners that we serve. Since the Texas Legislature only meets in regular session for a few months every other year, it is important for TCAA and its members to hit the ground running. Preparations and activities are already well underway to ensure the continued protection and support of community associations across the state.
TCAA will be monitoring hundreds of bills during this legislative session, as well as communicating regularly with legislators, stakeholders, and the TCAA community. The highest priority for TCAA in these efforts is to preserve the existing power of community associations to be largely self-regulated and self-governed, without undue government interference, so that they may continue to best serve homeowners in Texas. TCAA will also continue to monitor implementation of recently adopted regulatory changes, including numerous changes relating to notices, elections, meetings, and liens. The bottom line is that TCAA is proud of the work being done by local community associations and professionals in Texas, and wants to empower you and your neighbors to continue that success.
