State & Local Issues

Now more than ever, state legislatures and city halls are poised to impact the commercial real estate industry.  BOMA International’s advocacy team works in close coordination with BOMA’s state and local associations to protect the interests of the industry and share the latest information from across the country. 


BOMA OKC AdvDay 2017 - web.JPGCongratulations to BOMA/Oklahoma City, which successfully fought off an attempt to institute a number of sales taxes on commercial real estate in Oklahoma.  BOMA/OKC used its Capitol Advocacy Day to push the message that it fully supports a balanced budget, but not at the expense of services taxes that would do more harm than good.  Click here to read more about the effort as featured in BOMA Magazine.
