The quiet in the State Capitol belies a whirlwind of activity taking place as if the Legislature weren’t out of session. To get a glimpse of the job ahead, California’s leading small-business association today publicly released its legislative agenda for 2020.
“Assembly members and senators may have departed for the year, but we haven’t throttled back on the educational, lobbying, and coalition-building activities we’re working on in preparation for their return January 6,” said John Kabateck, California state director for the National Federation of Independent Business. “To rest is to get trampled.”
Paragraph descriptions of the following top seven small-business issues can be read here.
- Preventing Further Loss of Work for Independent Contractors
- Stopping a Sales Tax on Services
- Protecting Proposition 13 from Legislative and Ballot Box Assaults
- Reforming the California Consumer Privacy Act
- Curbing Lawsuit Abuse from the Private Attorney Generals Act
- Eliminating the Minimum Franchise Tax
- Pushing for Passage of a Flexible Workweek
