While state and local governments are already in full swing in 2014, we wanted to take a look back at 2013 and the many accomplishments of our affiliates.
Highlights of the 2013 State and Local Policy Review include:
- Legislative victories such as governors’ vetoes on rent control bills in New Jersey and California.
- Energy benchmarking initiatives in the cities of Boston and Chicago as well as inspection initiatives and property tax legislation.
- Updates on the Uniform Law Commission’s national effort to rewrite the Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act. Specifically, NAA staff and select members of the NAA Working Group efforts during the ULC’s Fall meeting in November.
- A recap of the highly contested 2013 gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia, and a look forward to the 36 states will hold gubernatorial elections in 2014.
