Appraiser Bill Analysis
SB 1007 makes changes to the structure and practices of the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board. The bill adjusts the board's functions, including changing board terms, advisory committee composition, real estate appraiser continuing education requirements, and various aspects of how complaints and disciplinary actions against real estate appraisers would be handled. The bill also places the board under Sunset review in 2019.
After numerous meetings and conversations between the FACT (Foundation Appraisers Coalition of Texas) Legislative Management Team and other FACT representatives and TALCB (Texas Appraiser Licensing & Certification Board) staff, our bill was filed as HB2850 and SB1007 and the bill moved forward and was passed as SB1007after a significant amount of work by Eric Woomer, FACT Lobbyist. It was signed into law by the Governor on June 9, 2015. A summary of key points of the bill will be forthcoming and disseminated.
