Because ICAP members contacted their legislators expressing their opposition

We are not done…….. there will be a meeting with the chairperson, Representative Robert Rita, next week to discuss our opposition and disenchantment with SB3237.

PLEASE…………Contact Representative Robert Rita at (708) 396-2822, and any of the committee members in your district to let them know that our state stature currently does not even permit an appraiser trainee to develop an opinion of market value on a $10,000 vacant lot …………..why should an employee of the municipally be permitted to do this ?

SB3237 Chair Person and Committee Members

We can do this, but only as a team …………….

    I called all the committee members. Some I had to leave a message, some I was able to speak to a live person and explain why I was calling. A couple offices said they were receiving lots of calls from ICAP people. Yippee! Some wanted to know if I was a constituent of the representative and although I said no, I did say that as an appraiser, I was a keeper of the public trust. SB3237 will erode that trust and leave open a door for other ‘exceptions”. My point is that all totaled, It took no more than 30 minutes to get through to the entire committee . Please do what you can to stop this amendment!
