Surplus Historic Properties - UPDATE - SB0074 (Massey) / HB 0300 (McDaniel)

Posted: 02/13/2013

In 2012, our friends at Knox Heritage met with Senator Massey regarding legislation that would help local governments dispose of surplus historic properties AND help preserve those properties. Yesterday, Senate Bill 0074 unanimously passed the State and Local Government Committee with one friendly amendment and will be placed on the calendar for vote on the Senate floor.

The bill will soon be on the Senate calendar for a vote. Please contact your State Senator and ask him/her to support SB0074 when it comes to the floor for a vote. The House Bill, being introduced by Rep. McDaniel, will be in committee shortly, but you can go ahead and contact your State Representative and ask them to support HB0300 when it is introduced.
