Senate and House Come Together to Address Accessible Housing

Denver--Today, the Senate introduced Senate Bill 45 sponsored in the Senate by President Kevin J. Grantham (R-Canon City) and Senator Angela Williams (D-Denver), and in the House by Speaker Crisanta Duran (D-Denver) and Assistant Minority Leader Cole Wist (R-Centennial). Senate Bill 45 will increase access to attainable, affordable housing in our state by mitigating backend costs for Colorado families.
Senate President Kevin J. Grantham issued the following statement:
 
"Last year alone, over 100,000 people moved to Colorado, but we only built about 25,000 new homes," said Senate President Kevin J. Grantham. "Creating accessible, affordable housing for Colorado families is a top priority, and this an ongoing bipartisan effort to remove barriers to homeownership and give every Coloradan a pathway to accessible, affordable housing." 
Speaker of the House Duran added: 
"By targeting insurance rates we're addressing the problem without reducing consumers' rights to protect the property that they spent their life's savings to buy," said Speaker of the House Crisanta Duran (D-Denver)
House Assistant Minority Leader Cole Wist also commented:
“This is the first step in a multi-tier process to help Coloradans attain a home of their own, and I am pleased to be a part of this critical legislation,” said Assistant House Republican Leader Cole Wist (R-Centennial). “The support of President Grantham and Speaker Duran on this issue demonstrates the significance of construction litigation reform and I am optimistic we will pass the remaining bills in this package to revive the market for attainable, for-sale housing in Colorado.”
Senator Angela Williams offered:
"Senate Bill 45 is the first step of a bipartisan effort to bring solutions to the complex issue of construction defects. As previous Insurance business owner I understand risk management and costs for all parties involved. Senate Bill 45 will will simplify and reduce litigation costs to benefit homeowners in a litigation claim," said Senator Angela Williams (D-Denver)

Make it so finance companies can’t treat the mortgages of modular & mobile homes on their own land differently from stick built homes. It’s not fair to make Modular & mobile home owners pay higher rates when they own the land the home sits on and are one loan. It’s just not right.
