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. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

The bill also permits the nonjudicial sale of real property valued at no less than $5,000 but no greater than $20,000 if taxes are delinquent for at least three years, the property is not subject to a recorded mortgage or deed of trust lien, and the property (i) is unimproved and measures less than 4,000 square feet; (ii) is unimproved and has been determined to be unsuitable for building (the bill expands the bases on which unsuitability may rest); (iii) has a structure on it that has been condemned by the local building official; (iv) has been declared a nuisance by the locality; (v) contains a derelict building; or (vi) has been declared to be blighted by the locality. The bill also modifies current law regarding notice of the sale, redemption of the property, and application of excess proceeds.
