Survey/ Automobile Insurance/ AB 722
Tuesday will be the closing of our annual survey. If you haven’t done so already please take a few moments to complete. We have received 632 responses so far. The survey can be found at http://www.smallbusinesscalifornia.org on the bottom left hand side. If you click on the Annual Surveys tab, you can also see the results of past surveys. We will be sending results of 2015 out next week.
Some insurance companies are beginning to charge on auto policies for citations for using cell phones and texting. This could affect the cost of your individual auto policy and commercial autos. One company considers texting, which includes even just looking at your phone while driving, as severely as they do drunk driving. Be sure to let your employees who are driving your vehicles know this.
As I said in a previous email, Small Business California crowd funding legislation has been introduced by Assembly member Henry Parea [AB 722]. We are putting together a letter which will include the signatures of small business associations around the state. So far we have about 20 that will sign. If you are part of an association and would like your association to be added to the letter please let me know. I can send a copy of the letter to you.
