Chamber opposes anti-business legislation pending in Sacramento

Now that the Legislature has passed a state budget and the Governor has signed the $144 billion dollar spending plan, the Legislature will now shift its focus to a number of issues pending in the capitol. Among them are numerous pieces of anti-business legislation that make it more difficult to do business in California. Chief among these issues is health care reform. Democratic leadership has authored a reform bill (AB 8 discussed later in this article), and the Governor has expressed his desire for action to take place on this issue prior to adjournment. With roughly a little over two weeks left for that to happen, things could happen quickly.

In addition to our own efforts on behalf of the business community, the GBCC is committed to informing you of these issues and providing you with the resources to voice your own opinion. Bills on which the GBCC has taken a position are on page 14.
