In 2013, BOMA  followed more than 250 bills that had a potential impact on our industry.  Many of those bills did not make it through the process or were amended in a way that resolves our concerns. Now, the cycle starts over again. We are reading every bill and trying to identify issues that will impact our industry — however, we may not catch everything and need your help.

As you go about your business, talking with colleagues at work lunches, your tax lawyers, reading newsletters from real estate organizations you are involved with, or while talking to local policymakers, if you hear of any bill that you are concerned with, please let us know. Simply send a note to Matthew Hargrove with the bill number, or just the subject matter, and we research it. We would rather get 100 notes asking us to follow something important, than allow an item to slip through the cracks.

An industry-wide meeting with representatives from all the major commercial real estate groups active in California will meet on April 3 to review all bills and set policy direction.  If you are interested in participating please let us know.
