HOAs become hot-button issue in AZ
Homeowners associations and possible legislation that may affect HOA groups were a hot topic Wednesday as lawmakers met with Chandler residents at the state Capitol.

Sen. John Huppenthal, R-Chandler, told a group of Chandler neighbors he plans to introduce a bill in the Legislature making it easier for homeowners associations to change their rules.
