AI sponsored bill 1866 that would have moved the OREA to the DOC and fought against its passage by the American Guild of Appraisers OPEIU AFL-CIO was vetoed by Governor Gray Davis yesterday.

The Bill would have put the OREA under the commission that also oversees lenders and realtors. The power of appointments would have been given to the commissioner instead of the Governor. It would have deminished the office.
Appraisals under the Federal Deminimus and not federally related would not have to be done by a licensed appraiser.

We feel that this is a victory for the appraiser and keeps the OREA as an
independent body.

Bravo!

And thank you, Bill!

Another breach shored up :roll:
May it be a precedent setting cure!

Both myself and trainee called the Gov's office requesting that veto of SB1866. The OREA has got its (many) problems but to shove in with those others would have made the OREA a small fish in a big pond. Thank you Mr. Davis (never thought I would say that).

Mr. Sentner,

Thanks for an outstanding job :!:

It's a shame there aren't other "professional" organizations willing to take a stand on issues.

George,

The truly sad part is that Bill said the AI was a sponsor of that bill. Just who does the AI really represent when they do things like this? I'm not trying to slam the AI - I just do not understand what they stand for anymore.

Pam,

That would be a long conversation. Personally I think the AI has written off residential appraisers, but that's me.

It's a shame that appraisers have never found a way to unite. Could you, or anyone, imagine what it would be like if all appraisers when on strike? It wouldn't take long for the financial market to pay attention and make changes.

Just ranting.

Pamela,

Neither do the rank & file of the AI. I am a RM & a SRA and sometimes I really wonder who the AI represents. It is a real political organization of "good old boys" and I am certainly not one of those.

Appraiser's --- unite For five years I have wondered if those two words can even go together.
