CARSON CITY — State Sen. Michael Schneider, long a champion of regulating homeowners associations, unveiled his senatorial swan song Wednesday — an omnibus bill that does everything from limiting fees upon the sale of a home to barring radar speed guns.

The Las Vegas Democrat compared homeowner associations to organized crime. He told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he has received threats to his family over other bills addressing associations he’s sponsored over the years.

Schneider’s proposal is one of at least 18 bills expected this legislative session addressing Nevada’s nearly 3,000 HOAs, and the 475,000 homes and some 1 million people within them.

Key in SB185 is a ban on transfer fees, which are incurred when someone sells their home.
