A slew of measures changing various aspects of condominium law in Illinois passed the House last week, but one bill found some opposition. Of the five measures the House speaker jokingly called “The Order of Cassidy,” Democrat Representative Kelly Cassidy’s House Bill 2644 found some resistance during floor debate.
The measure would do away with the ability for a provision in a condo declaration to be void if three-fourths of unit owners vote to do so. Several lawmakers said the measure doesn’t do what the sponsor thinks it would do. Republican Representative Peter Breen says the current law should not be changed.

Cassidy contends the measure protects the residents of the condominium units. Four other measures changing condominium law from Cassidy passed with no debate.
