ORANGE, CA-Two new California bills that will go into effect as laws soon were the topic of discussion at the recent AIR Commercial Real Estate Association seminar series here: Assembly Bill 1103 and Senate Bill 1186.

Watson tells that the original date the laws were supposed to go into effect is expected to be postponed from July 1 to August 1 due to the unavailability of the Energy Star Portfolio Manager site for a time later this month and extending into early July. That said, as of yet, no formal action has been taken to extend the effective date.
