Comments
State Bar is opposed to section 21 of the bill. The proposed modifications are in direct conflict with ss. 757.30(2) which provides that any person who appears in court as an agent of another person or entity for compensation is practicing law.

Report Date

Comments
This bill would erode many tenant protections, such as landlords no longer being required to notify tenants of code violations. As students are predominately renters, this negatively affects the students of the UW System.

Comments
We were not included in the original AB 183 drafting process. We are carefully reviewing the new AA 1 to AB 183, discussing other new amendments, finding areas of agreement and will certainly comment publicly as the bill moves to the State Senate.
