BOMA California Advocacy Update - June 2012


Please take a moment to review the following update from our advocates at BOMA California.  The following list includes measures BOMA California supports and opposes:

SUPPORT

SB 1186 - Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Reform

This bill prohibits an attorney or any person from issuing a demand for money to a building owner or tenant for a violation of a construction-related accessibility standard, and prohibits an attorney or any person from receiving any payment, settlement, compensation or other remuneration pursuant to a demand for money in cases alleging a violation of a construction-related accessibility standard.

Status: Awaiting committee assignment in the Assembly

SB 1436 - Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) Training and Liability for Building Owners

This bill makes permanent the existing protections that provide general immunity from civil damages in connection with the use of automated external defibrillators.

Status: In the Assembly Judiciary Committee

SB 1130 - Commercial Building Energy Retrofit Financing Act

This bill creates the Commercial Building Energy Retrofit Financing Program, administered by the California Energy Commission, to help provide benefits from alternative energy and energy efficiency improvements to participating owners of commercial buildings.

Status: In Assembly Natural Resources Committee

AB 2226 - Holder of Title Owns Property in Public Proceedings

Provides that the owner of a legal title is presumed to be the owner of the full beneficial title in proceedings before state agencies, cities, counties, or city and counties.

Status: In Senate Judiciary Committee

OPPOSE 

Although there are still many bills in the legislature that will have a negative impact on the commercial real estate industry in California, our advocates have focused on one bill that targets all of the members of BOMA California:

AB 2265  Management Decisions of Investment Districts

This bill unnecessarily restricts revitalization activities by limiting individuals and entities that can help set-up then manage community investment districts (BIDS/PBIDS).

Status: Awaiting Committee Assignment in the Senate.
