Next week we look forward to welcoming almost 100 leaders from the commercial, industrial, and retail real estate industry to Sacramento for the California Commercial Real Estate Summit (CCRES). Commonly referred to as “Commercial Real Estate Day in the Capitol,” this event is the one time of year that all sectors of industry converge on California’s Capitol to meet with policymakers about issues impacting your business.
This year participants are scheduled to meet with almost half of the Legislature as well as several high-level staff from Governor Brown’s Administration.
The goal of the California Commercial Real Estate Summit is to increase public policy and political awareness of state issues impacting commercial, industrial, and retail real estate, and to foster collaborative efforts among business leaders from all sectors of California and their representatives in the State Legislature.
This year we will be advocating on a range of measures including bills that would mandate building hiring (AB 350), interfere with local land-use and tenant improvement processes (SB 469), create an un-level playing field in Unlawful Detainer procedures (AB 265 and AB 934), and shift construction lawsuits onto property owners (SB 474). We will also focus time on educating legislators about the ills of looking towards a split roll property tax to help balance the state budget.
If you know someone that is taking time out of their busy schedule to come to Sacramento to advocate on YOUR behalf, please thank them!
