COST OF COMPLIANCE BILL SIGNED BY GOVERNOR

Governor Brown has signed an industry sponsored measure, AB 1612 (Lara; D – South Gate), which requires government agencies to provide an estimated cost and benefit of compliance when proposing new residential building standards is sitting on the Governor’s desk.

 

Although the bill currently applies only to residential projects, we are very supportive of the measure, as it will force state regulators to start considering the impact of their decisions not just on the economy as a whole but on individual homeowners and businesses.

 

Hailed by the CalChamber as a “Job Creator” we thank the Governor and Legislature for this practical reform.
