The Arizona chapter of NAIOP, a prominent commercial real estate voice in the state, has framed its guiding principles for the 2019 legislative session around public policies that drive demand for commercial real estate in Metro Phoenix and throughout the state.
“In 2019 we intend to promote legislation that positions our state to be the preferred choice for corporate locations and expansions,” said NAIOP Arizona President and CEO Suzanne Kinney. “We also support public policies that encourage the growth of local businesses through entrepreneurship and new business formation.”
