The BOMA California board reviewed success in 2012 and discussed policy issues related to energy, taxes, climate change, and repelling changes to Proposition 13. The board received a briefing on the political climate in Sacramento and learned about proposals contained in Governor Brown’s 2013-2014 budget proposal.

The Board also set the direction for the policy staff in Sacramento as we enter the 2014 Legislative Session. Despite the continued economic doldrums, legislators are introducing bills, many of which could have a major impact on the commercial real estate industry. BOMA representatives expect measures on property taxes, energy efficiency of new and existing buildings, seismic retrofits, electric vehicle charging stations, solar and photovoltaic policy.

As measures are introduced they are assessed through the board’s legislative committee, shared with local associations via Executive Board representatives and BAE’s, and positions are set to provide direction to your Sacramento representatives.
