UPDATE ON SEISMIC RETROFIT BILL AB 2681

BOMA/GLA has been actively involved in monitoring and shaping seismic legislation that would seriously impact commercial buildings in California. AB 2681 (Nazarian) as originally written mandated that cities develop a list of “potentially vulnerable buildings” based on certain age and construction criteria. The list would be posted on a public website, and owners would be required to perform a seismic audit and report the findings to the city.

BOMA CALIFORNIA DISPOSITION OF COMMERCIAL PROPERTY BILL PASSES FIRST COMMITTEE

BOMA California’s legislation regarding disposition of tenant personal property passed out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee.  The amended bill, AB 2173 by Assembly Member Santiago, changes the current threshold for a required public auction from $750 or $1 per square foot of tenant space to $2500 or one month’s rent, whichever is greater.

BOMA/GLA also took the step of obtaining support for the bill from the L.A. County Business Federation (BizFed), whose Board voted its approval on March 20th.
