State of the State

New Legislation to Prohibit Appraisal Discrimination 

On Monday, the New Jersey Senate Commerce Committee voted on two pieces of legislation aimed to tackle the issue of appraisal bias. S3317, sponsored by Senator Nellie Pou, would codify the prohibition of discriminatory practices in appraisal and require appraisers to take anti-bias training.

S3318, also sponsored by Senator Pou, would allow for a change in the experiential requirement needed for appraisal certification. Concurrent bills have also been introduced in the Assembly, sponsored by Assemblywoman Yvonne Lopez.

NJ Realtors® will continue to track these important pieces of legislation.
