Senate Bill 101

by M. Abraham

This bill (SB-101) modernizes the self storage auction laws allowing the storage owner to chose to advertise on an online auction site rather than being mandated to pay for costly advertisements in a newspaper.


*June 6 - 5 pm CT

Governor John Bel Edwards has signed SB-101 into law!

We appreciate the support that Governor Edwards has shown the self storage industry in the signing of SB101. This long-awaited bill removes the mandate for newspaper ads in our auction process.

SB101 is EFFECTIVE January 1, 2022

Special thanks to

  • Senator Mark Abraham for sponsoring our bill and for his hard work in helping get this into the law books!
  • Our lobbyist, Katherine Smith, for her many hours and her dedication to each detail of the process!
  • SSALA Board Member, Lana Griffin, for her tireless efforts, willingness to speak to our legislators, and endless enthusiasm in following this process through to the end!
  • SSALA President, Lonnie Bickford for his persistence, leadership, and guidance as he personally spoke on behalf of our industry numerous times before the legislature. 

You are welcomed to contact Senator Mark Abraham and thank him for his tremendous effort in getting this bill passed!
