PROPERTY. THE SENATOR FROM PETERSBURG, SENATOR DANCE.

Sen. Roz Dance (D-Petersburg): THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT. I MOVE THE BILL PASS AND SPEAKING TO THE BILL.

[Unknown]: THE SENATOR HAS THE FLOOR.

Sen. Roz Dance (D-Petersburg): THIS BILL CAME FROM THE VIRGINIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS, AND IT'S THE RESULT OF THE STAKEHOLDERS COMING TOGETHER AND WORKING OUT LANGUAGE TO PLACE AND STATUTE, THE COMMON LAW RULE THAT AFTER A FORECLOSURE THE LEASE IS TERMINATED BUT CONTINUES ON A MONTH TO MONTH BASIS UNTIL ONE OF THE PARTIES TERMINATES THE LEASE. THIS MAKES SURE THAT THE TENANT, THE NEW OWNER AND ANY PROPERTY MANAGER HAVE A A SMOOTHER TRANSITION AFTER A FORECLOSURE. THE REALTORS, THE POVERTY LAW CENTER AND A GROUP OF STAKEHOLDERS HAVE REACHED CONSENSUS ON THIS BILL, AND THERE WAS NO OPPOSITION PRESENTED IN COMMITTEE, AND I MOVE THE BILL PASS.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS, SHALL SENATE BILL 991 PASS. ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WILL RECORD THEIR VOTES AYE; THOSE OPPOSED, NO. ARE THE SENATORS READY TO VOTE? HAVE ALL THE SENATORS VOTED?
