The State Worker: Lawmakers to hold hearing on Board of Equalization move

jortiz@sacbee.comAugust 20, 2013 

An Assembly budget subcommittee is holding an informational hearing this afternoon to talk over what it will take to move Board of Equalization headquarters out of the troubled downtown Sacramento tower it currently occupies.

The 24-story building at 450 N St. has a long history of structural problems, from leaking windows and burst water pipes to toxic mold and faulty elevators. BOE, which collects and administers a variety of California taxes, has spent $65 million so far on repairs and has long argued to get out of the building.

A board representative is among the speakers scheduled for today's hearing, along with representatives from the Department of General Services, which acts as the property's landlord, and SEIU Local 1000.

We've embedded a DGS report laying out the relocation issues. You can watch the 1:30 p.m. Assembly Budget Subcommittee On State Administration hearing by clicking here.
