AB 1569 (Caballero; D-Salinas) is a bill that tries to address issues related to “companion animals” in public buildings.  This is an issue that many commercial real estate and residential real estate property managers deal with on an ongoing basis.  Under state and federal ADA laws its not always clear what can and cannot be required or even asked of a tenant or visitor that has such an animal in tow.  We applaud Ms. Caballero for taking on this issue and we are looking for feedback on whether the language of this proposed measure will address the issues your companies face.  We are also trying to clarify that this measure will apply equally to commercial as well as residential properties.  Click here to read the bill.
