CalChamber Applauds Governor’s Actions to Curb Coronavirus Outbreak and Protect Economy

Governor Gavin Newsom is to be applauded for his efforts to do everything possible to protect the health and safety of Californians while balancing the need to keep our economy open for business.

The government safety net for vulnerable populations and the workers displaced by a lack of economic activity is funded by the private sector economy through tax revenue as well as providing the jobs that give workers wages and benefits so they can provide for their families.

We strongly agree with the Governor that those Californians who can be productive must be productive to provide the goods and services we all need.

The California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber) is the largest broad-based business advocate to government in California.  Membership represents one-quarter of the private sector jobs in California and includes firms of all sizes and companies from every industry within the state.  Leveraging our front-line knowledge of laws and regulations, we provide products and services to help businesses comply with both federal and state law.  CalChamber, a not-for-profit organization with roots dating to 1890, promotes international trade and investment in order to stimulate California’s economy and create jobs.  Please visit our website at
