In line with these values, AIA CA was happy to be a part of the support coalition that pushed for the passage of the following bills signed by Governor Newsom this year:
AIA CA remains committed to doing our part to advance bills that improve the climate outlook for the built environment. We will continue to monitor climate bills that are introduced in coming legislative sessions and weigh in where necessary.
