As anyone who pays attention to Legislative proceedings can attest, many major decisions on policy are made towards the end of the process.  Even though most bills have been through a minimum of two policy committees so far, final language is yet to be decided on.  Some bills remain “a work in progress” until the very final hours of the Session.

Some of the major issues impacting commercial real estate that are yet to be resolved include: post-Redevelopment, CEQA Modernization, changes in the scheduled 2014 water bond, new fees on recorded real estate documents, mandatory water submeters for residential properties, energy policy, and more.  There are also rumors that several bills that were killed earlier in the session will be making a comeback.
