The bills relating to TLTA's affirmative agenda for the 85th legislative session have been moving through the House and Senate.
 
SB 1249, which relates to adverse possession amongst co-tenant heirs, passed through the Senate Committee on State Affairs on April 5. On April 18, it was referred to the House Committee on Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence. HB 3378, the companion bill to SB 1249, has been left pending in committee while waiting on the Senate bill to arrive.
 
Meanwhile, the two bills relating to expungement of lis pendens have been picking up steam. SB 1955 passed through the Senate Committee on State Affairs on April 26 and was referred to the House Committee on Business and Industry on May 2. HB 4086, the companion bill to SB 1955, is scheduled to be placed on the General State Calendar on May 4.
 
In addition, none of the bills directly relating to title insurance have progressed since our last Legislative Update.
 
TLTA will keep you updated on the status of these bills as they progress.
