With more than 9 million Californians as homeowners, residents of common interest developments (aka homeowner associations or HOAs), it stands to reason that there is a specific body of law to help govern these communities. Of course, that law is the Davis-Stirling Act (DSL), extant since 1985.
Actually, the origin and authorship standings for the Davis-Stirling Act is not really that unusual in California. In order to get bills passed, legislators often collaborate with fellow legislators, as in Republicans with Democrats (a minority member with a majority member), assuring legislation passes the California Assembly and/or The State Senate. Behind the scenes, the true authors of legislation are hired by or are members of special interest groups like the California Bar or homeowner association professionals.
