BOMA Releases New Tool to Track COVID-Related State Legislation
U.S. state and local governments have been at the center of the COVID-19 emergency, and BOMA local associations have been hard at work ensuring that policies both slow the spread of the virus and also allow essential services to continue. Most government actions have taken place through executive orders, but a next wave of policy activity will be coming soon as many state legislatures are still in session. Some of this activity may significantly inform commercial real estate operations, especially as governments across the U.S. consider plans for reopening businesses. As first reported in BOMA International's Insider last week, to assist members with tracking any COVID-related state legislation, BOMA International has prepared a live report that details all current bills introduced at the state level that directly relate to the pandemic. The report will automatically update with the latest information, and members are welcome to share it.
Additionally, to see a comprehensive list of non-legislative actions in your state—including executive orders, emergency declarations, travel restrictions, school closures, etc.—visit our partner, the National Governors Association. Between these two resources, you can track major actions that have already taken place in your state and stay on top of potential upcoming legislation.
