In 2019, we made significant headway on several priority issues. BOMA’s influence enabled terrorism risk insurance authorization to pass in the House of Representatives, energy efficient legislation to pass in the Senate Energy committee, and the Energy Efficient Commercial Building Tax Deduction (179D) to be considered for passage in upcoming negotiations for year-end congressional priorities.
While 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
