A bill giving Draconian extra-legal powers to homeowner associations is taking a beating from Democrats and Tea Party Republicans — and it’s on the verge of becoming law.

House Bill 791 “aims to protect residents living in homeowner and condominium associations … from overly aggressive enforcement of association rules,” said sponsoring Delegate Jim LeMunyon, R-Chantilly.

Critics say the measure does the reverse, and they call it “an end-run around property rights.”

“Somewhere, George Orwell is rolling over in his grave,” said state Sen. Chap Petersen, D-Fairfax.
