Yesterday in a well-lit room in Irvine, CA, twenty-five leaders/experts from the commercial real estate industry gathered to review more than 400 pieces of legislative that potentially has an impact on your business.

Legislators have introduced over 2,400 bills, since January, and all of those bill have been reviewed and analyzed by multiple committees of experts representing owners and/or managers of retail, industrial, office, and mixed-use properties; we also had several lawyers expert in environmental law, leasing and escrow, and energy.  Together, positions were discussed and adopted to set the direction for the representatives of commercial real estate in Sacramento.

This year, measures on property taxes, energy efficiency of new and existing buildings, seismic retrofits, electric vehicle charging stations, solar and photovoltaic policy, outdoor landscaping, water conservations, and single use restrooms, CEQA, collective bargaining, are all under consideration in the Legislature.

Please help us thank everyone that is giving up their St. Patrick’s Day to give back to the industry by providing analysis and discussion on bills that have the potential to impact our bottom line.
