“CBPA members agree that all businesses are hurting due to the government mandated shelter in place order and look forward to working with Senator Wiener on a bill that helps both business renters and property owners. SB 939 does not currently do that. It puts all the burden on property owners and will simply compound the crisis.
“We call on the Legislature to write a bill that helps all businesses and balances the needs of both property owners and commercial property renters.”
