This bill may be heard as early as Monday on General File in the Wyoming House. The bill provides for a legal, simple and affordable way to remove unenforceable restrictive and discriminatory covenants from property records here in Wyoming. It passed out of the Corporations Committee 9-0 last week. It is sponsored by REALTOR Representative Shelly Duncan and is supported as amended by Wyoming REALTORS, the Wyoming Land Title Association, a coalition of local Chamber of Commerce and specifically the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce. Please TAKE ACTION NOW
Currently the only pathway to remove these unenforceable restrictive covenants would be through a court action that could cost between $10,000 and $20,000. This would cost the fee for filing a one page document.
Racially restrictive covenants have been unenforceable since 1948 and were specifically made illegal with the passage of the Federal Fair Housing Act in 1968. Contact your Representative here!
