A bill designed to protect landlords from having holes punched in their property for satellite dishes got the go-ahead in the House on Wednesday.
House Bill 1387 puts into law that a person installing a fixture such as “an antenna, satellite dish or other receiver” on residential rental property has to get written consent of the landlord or owner.
