Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.
To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression.

Real estate - appraisals - definition - exemption for analyses prepared by agents of financial institutions and affiliates. Current law exempts from the definition of a "real estate appraisal" certain analyses prepared by an officer, director, or regularly salaried employee of a financial institution or its affiliate when the analyses are used for internal purposes only. Federal law also exempts such analyses when they are prepared by an agent of a financial institution or its affiliate. The act adds these agents to the list of people who can make these exempt analyses.(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
