Following Senate approval earlier this year, the House today overwhelmingly passed SB 673, a bill to extend the sunset of the Obsolete Property Rehabilitation Act from December of this year until the end of 2026. This act has been used in communities across the state to assist in the redevelopment of obsolete buildings and putting properties back in to productive use.
Thank you Senator Horn for continuing to be an advocate on this issue and keeping a valuable local tool that assists our communities in redevelopment and economic development.
The legislation now goes to the Governor for his signature.
