The Senate voted for closure on the Small Business Jobs Bill. We actually got 61 votes.
The bad news is the 1099 amendments to reduce the filing requirements both got voted down. We will be coming back on this.
The final vote should be coming if not today in the next couple of days and we expect passage. Thank you to all that helps us get this major win.
Small Business California needs your help. Please let me know if you could help.
SB 900 and AB 1602 are the bills establishing the Exchange. Please let me know if you can help and where you are located.
· We need to identify small business owners who can talk about how the new health care law will benefit his/her business.
We need small business owners in Sacramento and San Francisco on September 23rd for the health care fair news events when the phase one of the new law is implemented.
We also need a small business owner who could not afford to give employees health care benefits but now will because of new law. That person would be at the news conference with the Governor possibly signing SB 900 and AB 1602 on September 23. This person could also do “curtain raiser” stories with reporters before the 23rd.
· We also need small business owners who can talk about the new health care law and how it will benefit his/her business at the following briefings. Will make times available soon:
9/17 - SF
9/29 - Fresno
10/5 - Inland Empire
10/13 - San Diego
10/19 – Sacramento
