    In a normal year, we seem to have only one or two high priority bills to support.  However, this year, maybe because its an election year, there are more bills we actually like than oppose.  Following are the bills we advocated for.  Each number is linked to the actual bill, if you want to read the legislative language:

    SB 1186 (Steinberg and Dutton) 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 Assignment in Assembly

    SB 1436 (Lowenthal; D – Long Beach) 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 Assembly Judiciary Committee

    SB 1130 (de Leon; D-Los Angeles) 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 (Hueso; D-Chula Vista) Holder of Title Owns Property in Public Proceedings
