01:32 PM -- HB 16-1339



Representatives Buck and Ginal, co-prime sponsors, presented House Bill 16-1339, concerning agricultural property foreclosures. Representative Buck distributed Amendment L.001 (Attachment A), which strikes everything below the enacting clause. Current law establishes the initial date of sale of foreclosed property based on who is selling the property and whether the property is agricultural or nonagricultural. Property is nonagricultural unless all of the property is considered agricultural. The bill, as amended, allows property that is an part agricultural to be considered agricultural and entitled to a longer time frame between the date of foreclosure notice and the foreclosure sale.
