Graciously hosted by LBA Realty at their newly reimagined Park Place campus, the BOMA California board reviewed successes in 2013 – including significant reform of California’s ADA Laws – and discussed policy issues related to water, energy, taxes, and repealing changes to Proposition 13. The board received a briefing on the political climate in Sacramento and reviewed the Governor’s Budget Proposal as well as legislation that has been introduced so far.

The Board also set the direction for the policy staff in Sacramento as we enter the 2013 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, financing for building upgrades, CEQA, solar panels, and water efficiency.

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

BOMA is all about advocacy for the commercial real estate industry, whether before a board of supervisors, the California State Legislature, state agencies like the State Fire Marshal’s office or the Public Utilities Commission, or the U.S. Congress.

BOMA California is a federation of all eight metropolitan BOMA local associations and serves as the collective membership through its mission of “preserving and promoting the interest of California commercial real estate professionals through legislative and regulatory advocacy.”

The mission of BOMA California is to preserve and promote the interests of California commercial real estate professionals through legislative and regulatory advocacy.
