We are pushing 200 responses to our survey. Thank you to all that have completed it.
To those of you that haven't please take a moment to complete. You can access by going to I would appreciate all of you to forward to others.

As I have said before this sets the agenda for Small Business California for 2007. It is early but some very interesting trends seem to be developing and when we complete the survey all of you will be advised of the results.

Yesterday the Republicans came out with their health proposal and I was very gratified to see mention of our proposal to give owners who set up 125 plans the same tax privileges enjoyed by our employees. This is a fairness issue and we will be high on our legislative agenda next year.

We are making a difference but we will only be successful with your continued support and participation.

Governors Health Plan

Subject: Governors Health Plan

Small Business California has had numerous contacts on the Governors Health plan and I am sure will get many more throughout the year. Our position is that if the cost of health insurance is reduced and increases in the future are stabilized that small business is willing to pay something for our employees health coverage. We applaud the Governor for trying to tackle this issue and really are anxious to see how his cost control measures will play out after farther analysis.
If you disagree let me know.
I would also like to know if any of you are interested in talking to the media. If so please let me know by return email and please give me your location.

In an effort not to send two emails to my San Francisco friends I want to invite you to a reception for our new Supervisor Ed Jew. Ed is the best person in a long time for San Francisco small businesses. The reception will be from 5:30 to 7PM on February 22.
