House Bill 98

Phil Haunschild 2017 House bill ratings

Bill Description: This legislation amends the provisions for real estate advertising to include the language “clearly and conspicuously” in licensing display.

Rating: -1

Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market?

Current state law says “all advertising of listed property shall contain the broker’s licensed business name” and “all advertising by licensed branch offices shall contain the broker’s licensed business name.” This bill would add the words “clearly and conspicuously” to both sentences. It does not indicate what the phrase means, but it does afford the Real Estate Commission more power to regulate the marketplace.  (-1)
