Legislation

CBIA’s advocacy team strategically focuses its efforts to defeat hostile legislation while advancing legislation beneficial to the industry.

CBIA was extremely successful in the 2018 legislative efforts.

In total, CBIA took positions on more than 80 bills and monitored more than 300 bills. CBIA also implemented the Housing Killers and Housing Creators in 2018 for the first time, which had great success due to the magnitude of California’s current housing crisis.
