. We've expressed our disappointment to the Governor's office and will work with them and DCP to get clarity about the need for modernizing real estate practice to reflect consumer needs.
Please note, CTR lobbyists met with DCP about all of the legislation, including this bill, at the start of the session. DCP chose not to take a position or engage in the legislation during the past months, including not testifying at the public hearing.
