Your BOMA Advocacy Team and fellow BOMA San Francisco members will be in Sacramento this week for the 2010 California Commercial Real Estate Summit to talk to our elected Bay Area leaders in the California State Legislature on the following priority measures (click on the links below to review the bills):
AB 1693 by Assemblymember Fiona Ma (D-San Francisco)
Measure will modify the code adoption cycle and extend it to an 18 months process, adding 3 month to the interim update process. This will allow more time to write consider new code impacts before adoption, and provide additional time for education and training.
SB 476 by Senator Lou Correa (D - Santa Ana)
Measure will help move forward construction and redevelopment projects by updating and clarifying procedures in the environmental permit process. Protects a previously occupied retail structure and associated parking lot when an alteration or reuse will improve the energy efficiency or reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of the existing structure and associated parking lot, provided the alterations will not result in a material increase of the footprint or floor area ratio of the existing retail structure and associated parking lot.
