Survey/ IRS/SB626

Yesterday you all received the link to our annual survey. I have told you that this will be delivered to every Assembly person, state Senator and the Governor . I have also said that the survey is used by legislators.

Yesterday I received a very nice note from Toni Symonds , Chief Consultant for the Assembly Committee on Jobs ,Economic Development and the Economy. She said

“Good stuff,thank you Scott. I will be referring to your survey in my policy analysis”

Thank you Toni

If you have not seen the survey it can be accessed by going to our website at

There has been an effort by the National Small Business Association and Small Business California to get language out of Washington that is understandable.

This is a real problem and as an example I cite and IRS regulation regarding shared responsibility in the Affordable Care Act

“√úse of payroll periods. For payroll periods that are one week,two weeks,or semi-monthly in duration,an employer is permitted to treat as a measurement period a period that ends on the last day of the payroll period preceding the payroll period that includes the date that would otherwise be the last day of the measurement period, provided that measurement period begins on the first day of the payroll period that includes the date that would otherwise be the first day of the measurement period”

You can’t make this up.Thanks David Burton of NSBA for sending this clarification.

We will be sending our association letter opposing SB 626 which would unravel many of the reforms in last year workers compensation reform bill. Please see the 33 associations that will be signing the letter. Thank you to all
