CalARVC Cites 32 California ‘Job Killer’ Bills
Editor’s Note: The following story appears in the current edition of “Wednesday Morning Coffee Talk & Updates,” an e-publication of the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (CalARVC).
The California Chamber of Commerce this week released its annual list of “job killer” bills, calling attention to the negative impact that 32 proposed measures would have on California’s job climate and economic recovery if they were to become law.
“California policy makers should keep their focus on the No. 1 issues affecting their constituents — economic recovery and job creation,” said CalChamber President and CEO Allan Zaremberg. “Each of these proposed job killer bills would increase uncertainty for employers and investors and lead to higher costs of doing business, which will undermine the economic health of the state.
“Employers are already feeling the pinch of higher health care premiums, higher workers’ compensation premiums, increased unemployment insurance taxes, and general tax increases. In this environment, it is critical that we keep all other costs of doing business in check. Individually these bills are bad, but cumulatively they are worse.”
Legislation included on the “job killer” list will change throughout the year as bills are amended or new language is introduced.
