Branstad signs Landlord-Tenant Bill

Thursday afternoon Gov. Terry Branstad signed into law House File 495, otherwise known as the “Landlord-Tenant Bill,” which updates legal protections for both landlords and tenants. HF 495 passed the House and the Senate unanimously. Rep. Greg Heartsill, who brought the bill out of committee and managed it on the House floor, attended the bill signing ceremony. Heartsill commented, “A lot of work went into this bill behind the scenes to get the various groups on board with it and to muster strong bi-partisan support. The governor handed me the first pen that signed the bill into law to recognize my efforts in passing this legislation. That was quite an honor.”
