when legislation has to be passed in order to hang your laundry out to dry!

Lol! Be happening in England soon I'm sure. Who's going to enforce it? lol
Thanks for that Texan...looks like they are going to draw a Line in the sand......
This will drive the laundry community underground...forced to hang their drawers in dark alleys..needing lookouts for the panty police...Soooooo very sad.
Freedom of expression getting crushed.
Freedom of choice getting crushed.
Freedom of life getting crushed.
No wonder why society is de-evolving in morality, instead of progressing forward, like it should be.
Nice thought, dumb execution - AGAIN. Should have been working with the homeowners assns in the first place. They could have jumped on the "green" ride and earned a lot of good will. Now MD is just going to spend a lot of wasteful time and $'s on a stupid bill that won't make any sense.
We have a lot of "homeowner associations" around here. I can just see them (and those in MD) saying no problem - then writing in rules like only between the hours of 5 am and 7am, and only in the back within 2 feet of the housing structure, etc.
If I lived in MD I'd be really pissed that lawmakers have time to put up such a bill! Sorry, we couldn't get to the education bill because we got tied up with the laundry bill
Too many people have way too much on their hands when they start putting limits on hanging your laundry out to dry.
You can't do that where I live but you don't have to live here either. When you go to closing you sign an agreement that you will abide by the rules that are in place. If you never intended on abiding then you lied in which case you have bigger character issues than your laundry.
why not save electricity and then as long as it is your backyard
I personally do not hang laundry out as a matter of choice but I should have the choice!
I actually think I know where this started. There was a series of lawsuits I think a few years back; some old lady fell off her roller something because she didn't see a long laundry line (slung quite low) in her path!
Muy interesting Texan!
It's hard for me to believe it was ever illegal! to hang your clothes out. Let's go green, let those boxers fly!
I think the point of this post is simply about the HOA dictating what a person can or can't do with their property. My take is this..
If I buy a property and I pay the taxes and am responsible for the upkeep and the payments then it is my property and as long as it does not have a negative health or financial risk for my neighbors then I can do what I want. The government and courts have begun to take the side of homeowners in these matters, for example satellite dishes were prohibited by many HOA but the government and courts have since ruled that homeowners have the right to use them, more suits are being brought now because of the energy products like wind turbines and solar panels. The courts and government are eventually going to tell HOA's that they do not have the right to prevent people from using technology to better thier lives and property

I had a dream several times over about a year. I was in my yard and was attacked by a lion. I always won the fight. No idea what it meant. Pretty strange.
