President Obama

The Board of Small Business California will be meeting tomorrow and discussing President Obama’s Jobs proposal. What are your thoughts? Will it encourage you to hire a new employee or hold off releasing employees?

I assume most of you are aware that Speaker Perez bill AB 29 passed and is now on the Governor’s desk. This bill creates the Office of Business and Economic Development. I have been told the funding for the office is $800000. Seems like a very small amount for an economy that is the 8th largest in the world and compares unfavorably with Ohio’s that has a budget of over 14 million . Small Business California strongly supported this bill and testified in committee and while it appears to be underfunded we still feel it is important that California have this Office.
