Replacement Dwelling Bill Moves to Senate Floor

A bill supported by Oregon Farm Bureau is moving to the floor of the Senate for a vote. HB 2746 passed out of the Senate Committee on Rural Communities and Economic Development yesterday. The bill was amended to address a technical concern. The bill would allow some homes that do not qualify currently to be replaced. These are homes that have fallen into disrepair by suffering roof damage or had internal plumbing or electricity removed. It also makes deferred replacement of a home transferable to family members. To qualify, taxes will be needed to be paid for five years on the home before an application for replacement is filed.

OFB anticipates this bill to pass and be signed by the Governor into law.
