Latest News


The California State Legislature has entered into its final year of the two-year session and state elections have started heating up in Sacramento.  The combination of these two elements creates the perfect storm in the political arena.  When this happens, there is an increase of “hot topic” bills, which fall heavily along party lines.  Hot topic bills that building departments will have interest in are bills related to green building, solar energy, and recycled water.   

These topics are also considered top priorities for Governor Brown’s administration. CALBO’s Government Affairs Committee has reviewed all of the newly introduced legislation and is currently working with legislative offices to promote sound code development and building practices.  Read more about CALBO’s main bills of interest by clicking the title above.
