Subject: Ideas for Legislation
Small Business California has had an incredible year. We have increased the visibility of grass roots small businesses around the state and all of our major bills have been passed and signed by the Governor.
Next week I will send you a list of our accomplishments. One thing we are really proud of is our support of AB 32[ the greenhouse emissions bill]. On November 1 Hank Ryan and I will be going to Washington DC where SB Cal will be honored by the Center for Small Business and the Environment at a cocktail reception with a number of number of people in the environmental community. Even more exciting is that we will be part of a hearing that day probably on the Senate side to discuss small business involvement in the energy/global warming debate.
We are in the process of trying to develop a legislative package for next years session. Our board will be meeting next week. Please give me ideas of legislation you might want us to consider. Remember it must be state focused and in our core areas- health, workers compensation,education and workforce, infrastructure,regulations and energy. It also must be broad based legislation that effects most if not all small businesses not one industry or region.
I look forward to hearing from you.
