The largest return on investment for home builder and land developer members of the BIA comes from
our Government Affairs activities. Each month BIA staff reviews the agendas of:
3 Councils of Government
3 Local Area Formation Commission
4 County Boards of Supervisors
27 Planning Commissions
Additionally we monitor the activities of 61 school districts and several regional agencies with regulatory
powers. Annually we review the spending activity of all local agencies which collect impact fees
to ensure the fee dollars are spent for appropriate purposes.
We also coordinate efforts with the California Building Industry Association and the National Association of Home Builders
on state and national issues respectively.
With government agencies and policy makers the BIA is the shield and sword of the Building Industry
protecting the rights of our members and when necessary enforcing those rights.
