2022 Business Issues and Legislative Guide
The CalChamber prepares this guide annually to provide comprehensive overviews of our priorities and the data to support our positions.
As California begins to emerge from this pandemic and as part of our Agenda for California Recovery, the CalChamber recommends that state policy makers exercise caution and restraint when considering new policies and regulations. In order for California to maintain a competitive advantage, policy makers need to carefully navigate the new, post-pandemic normal.
