The California State Legislature is currently in Summer Recess so now is a good time to review the first half of the first half of the 2013-2014 Legislative Session. Representing the largest coalition of commercial real estate industry professional groups and individual companies, we are tracking over 400 pieces of legislation. We have taken positions on 103 bills.  Of the 68 bills deemed “High Priority,” we oppose or are working to fix 56.  Only one bill we oppose has made it to the Governor while 31 have been defeated or amended in a way to remove our industry’s opposition.  We have sponsored two bills and both continue to move through the Legislature.

So far, it has been a very good year!

Due to the Summer Recess, this Weekly eNewsletter will be on hiatus, returning on Friday, August 16.  But don’t worry; your Sacramento staff will be here keeping an eye on the Capitol and if anything exciting happens we will make sure you know about it.
