AB 2460 (Ta) – Reduced quorum

Status: Awaiting Action on the Assembly Floor.

SB 1470 (Glazer) – Construction Defect

The proposed legislation eliminates the builder’s responsibility for defective products, overturning 60 years of product liability case law.  It violates public policy as a homeowner who is aware of a structural defect would not be able to seek a repair from the builder until damage occurs, which could be the failure of a balcony or worse, a condominium building.  SB 1470 will reduce the homeowner’s ability to seek relief from the builder who constructed the defect, and instead place the financial burden of the repair on the owner. This will make condominium living less affordable.

Position:  Opposed
Status: Hearing cancelled at request of author – DEAD for the year.

Buck A Door Or More Campaign

Monitoring, advocating, and promoting grassroots efforts to support or oppose legislation is a costly venture, spending approximately $156,000 annually on these efforts. To maintain our high level of success, CAI-CLAC needs your help. We are asking you to consider approving a line item in your annual fiscal budget to help support CAI-CLAC’s Buck A Door Or More fundraising campaign.
The Buck A Door Or More campaign is meant to give each household the opportunity to support our advocacy efforts by simply donating $1 per door. For example, if your association consists of 100 units, we are asking for a contribution of $100 (or more) for CAI-CLAC. Donations are for legislative advocacy, not political contributions.
We’ve made donating easy! Simply make your contribution online. To learn more about why your donation is critical, you can read more here.
Thank you for your support!
