Legislative Action Committee
The Chapter actively participates in the work of the California Business Properties Association (CBPA), the designated legislative advocate for the NAIOP of California and other industry associations. CBPA represents over 10,000 members, making it the largest consortium of commercial real estate professionals in California. This past year, the Chapter was active in opposing AB 2416 which would have, if passed, crippled California businesses by allowing any employee, governmental agency, authorized representative, or any entity to which a portion of the employee’s wages are payable, to record liens on an employer’s real property, personal property or any property where an employee “performed work” for an alleged, yet unproven, wage claim.
