BOMA LEGISLATIVE UPDATES
The 2019 long session is up and running. Take a look at bills BOMA Indianapolis is tracking:
Libby Cierzniak putting experience to work for you

BOMA Indianapolis serves Marion County and the surrounding counties of Madison, Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Marion and Boone.In considering it positions, BOMA Indianapolis is aware that not all of its members may necessarily hold the same opinion on specific legislation. Likewise, BOMA Indianapolis recognizes that while a proposed bill may on its surface appear to be something that BOMA Indianapolis should take a position based on our policy, there is often more to the legislation than can be garnered on first read. Therefore, BOMA Indianapolis commits itself to the meticulous study of all proposed legislation, and to seek the advice of the Legislative Committee and hired lobbyist before declaring its position. BOMA Indianapolis promotes the practice of commercial real estate ownership and management. For this reason, while we may concentrate our efforts on legislation proposed by the Indiana General Assembly, we also consider the needs of our members at the local level. Check out a letter from our executive director to Governor Mike Pence regarding the Indiana Energy Code set to expire on December 31, 2016. Governor Pence did indeed sign the code extension.
Rep. Trey Hollingsworth (R-IN), Executive Director Sarah Kuester, President Chris Yeakey, and Legislative Chair Tristan Glover take time for a photo after discussing ADA legislation, infrastructure funding, and ENERGY STAR on January 31, 2018.
