BOMA International's advocacy team is hard at work continuing to positively impact the commercial real estate industry and protect our members' livelihood. Last year BOMA was incredibly successful on a host a fronts. In February of 2018, BOMA gained huge headway with ADA Lawsuit reform with the passage of the ADA Education & Reform Act (H.R. 620) in the House, in March BOMA International's president, Henry Chamberlain, testified before Congress on the importance of the Energy Efficient Commercial Building Tax Deduction (179D). Additionally, we convinced congress to continue funding EPA’s ENERGY STAR program in FY19 appropriations bills.
these are important victories that are the product of years of hard work and
education, there is always more work to be done. We need to continue to educate
and inform lawmakers about the commercial real estate industry and the issues
our members face every day. To learn more about how to become an advocate for your industry, please
