Climate Change and Energy
California has embarked on an ambitious effort to implement AB 32, The Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. This far-reaching bill requires the California Air Resources Board to develop a cap on carbon emissions. The regulations will have a direct impact on electricity generation, oil, cement and landfills, all in which could result in increased costs to you. As the largest business advocate, the CalChamber is taking a very active role in the implementation process. We are advocating sound solutions to minimize the effects of climate change and assisting the Air Resources Board in developing new ways by which the state can reduce its carbon footprint at the least possible cost to California industries.

The CalChamber-supported workers’ compensation reforms fundamentally changed many of the failed areas within the workers’ compensation system. These reforms resulted in significant savings for all employers. The CalChamber is responding to these threats by increasing its involvement in workers’ compensation cases and intervening in important cases on behalf of California employers. To learn more about the CalChamber’s involvement, or if you are willing to alert the CalChamber to any legal challenges you are facing in workers’ compensation, email us.
