Legislative Update - March 2023

Hickey & Foster Real Estate is a proud supporter of the Realtors Political Action Committee (RPAC). This organization is active on a local, state and national level with the goal of advancing public policies and candidates that build strong communities, protect property interests and promote a vibrant business environment. 

Through RPAC and the state-lead Government Affairs Committee, which includes our own Steven Foster, Realtors are involved in helping shape the landscape of legislative policies in Vermont.

Here is a breakdown of some of the proposed legislation that may affect your property:

S100 - Omnibus Housing Bill

  • Changes to zoning bylaws that would allow for duplexes in any residential zone 
  • Changes to zoning bylaws that would require denser development in areas that are served by municipal sewer and water 
  • Changes to Act 250 including easing restrictions on development of 25 units or less  

H276 - Rental Registry

  • Testimony given on the proposal to create a statewide registry of all rental properties

S5 - Affordable Heat Act

  • Would require heating fuel providers to encourage improved winterization of homes
