                                         LEGISLATIVE UPDATE
BOMA Government Affairs Committee
The Government Affairs Committee meets on the first Thursday of the month at noon at the BOMA office. Please
plan to attend the next meeting to be held on Thursday, September 3, 2009. All members, both Principal and Allied,
are invited to participate in this important committee, which covers a variety of governmental issues that impact the
commercial real estate industry. One of the primary benefits of serving on this committee is that you get advanced
information about issues that impact you and your building or company.
Legislative Affairs

The Legislative Affairs Committee (LAC), chaired by Judy Anderson and Shawn Murphy, is busy this summer
attending legislative fundraisers and other events to meet with state legislators, including some new appointees, and
to keep the BOMA name out there. In addition, the committee is preparing for the 2010 legislative session (yes, it’s
not too early). A meeting was held at the City and County of Denver regarding the prompt pay issue and payment
processes and the coalition that worked on the bill last session is meeting to discuss the plans for the upcoming
                           LEGISLATIVE UPDATE (con’t)
Credit Crisis Hearing Focuses on Commercial Real Estate

The Joint Economic Committee held a hearing on Capitol Hill in July to examine the growing financing problems
facing the commercial real estate market and to explore potential solutions to the credit crisis. The hearing had four
witnesses: Real Estate Roundtable President and CEO Jeffrey DeBoer; National Association of Realtors Treasurer
James Helsel; Deutsche Bank Securities Research Analyst Richard Parkus; and Jon D. Greenlee, associate director
for banking supervision and regulation at the Federal Reserve.

Witnesses testified about the negative impact the stalled transaction volume could continue to have on banks, local
government budgets and services, job creation and Americans´ retirement portfolios. Witnesses suggested that
Congress extend the Term Asset–Backed Loan Facility (TALF) program from year–end 2009 to year–end 2010.
The program became operational for newly issued commercial mortgage–backed securities (CMBS) only last
month and just began accepting highly–rated "legacy" (pre–2009) CMBS as collateral. DeBoer recommended the
modification or repeal of the Foreign Investment in Real Property Act (FIRPTA) and extending the carry back
period for net operating losses (NOL) to five years for all businesses as possible policy changes to help address the
credit crisis.
Energy/Climate Bill Change Clears House and Awaits Senate Action

On June 26, the House of Representatives mustered the votes to pass H.R. 2454 – The American Clean Energy
Security Act of 2009, which includes legislation that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions through a cap and
trade program. The far–reaching legislation also includes several other energy efficiency provisions that would
directly impact the commercial real estate industry. BOMA supports language that would provide incentives for
increasing the energy efficiency of buildings; however, we continue to strongly oppose a mandate that would
require future versions of ASHRAE 90.1 to meet extremely aggressive and arbitrary energy efficiency targets. If
the prescribed targets are not met through the consensus standard writing practice, the Department of Energy would
be tasked with writing the standard.

Action is now underway in the Senate. The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee has already approved
energy language, and the Environment and Public Works Committee is working on the climate change provisions.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has set September 28 as his target date to complete action. At this time, it does
not appear that the Democrats are going to have sufficient support to pass a cap and trade program.

Representative Marostica to become Chief Colorado Eco Devo Officer

Loveland lawmaker Don Marostica, a Colorado native in his second term as a representative from House District
51 and who spoke at BOMA’s June luncheon, has been named Colorado's new chief economic development
director by Governor Ritter. Representative Marostica is a developer who was a member of the powerful Joint
Budget Committee and who sponsored BOMA’s bill, HB-09 1365, to rectify the unintended consequences of a
2008 bill that exempted state tenants from paying property taxes. In his new position, Marostica hopes to create
more jobs and attract more businesses and more trade to Colorado. Marostica succeeds Don Elliman, who now is
the governor’s chief operating officer.
