CRE Alert: Fate of the BOMA Cal Top 8    

BOMA Cal Top 8

The first legislative deadline of the season has passed, and we wanted to provide you with an update on the fate of BOMA California’s Top 8 priority bills.  

What You Need to Know  

Bills Supporting Business Growth:  

  • AB 2433 Streamlines building permit processes with new fee options and private professionals' help. [PASSED ASSEMBLY] 
  • AB 3196 Sets clear timelines for resolving commercial property disputes, reducing delays and costs. [PASSED ASSEMBLY] 
  • AB 3068 & AB 2910 Promote converting commercial spaces into homes or mixed-use areas with financial incentives and simpler permissions. [BOTH PASSED ASSEMBLY] 
  • SB 1227 aims to revitalize San Francisco’s Downtown by easing environmental rules for specific projects. [HELD IN COMMITTEE] 

Bills to Oppose:  

  • SB 1103 would improperly apply residential rental rules to commercial properties, hampering landlords' and businesses' ability to negotiate lease agreements. [PASSED SENATE] 
  • AB 2364 would create a council (like the Fast Food Council) that then would be empowered to set regulations around workplace conditions, undermining the collective bargaining process. [PASSED ASSEMBLY] 
  • AB 2374 extends the time janitors must be kept after losing their jobs to 90 days and requires preferential hiring based on seniority, potentially raising operating costs for properties and tenants due to the retention of extra employees. [PASSED ASSEMBLY] 

Take Action

We move to the next stage in the legislative process as bills that passed their house of origin will now move to the next chamber.
