2019 CalChamber Business Issues and Legislative Guide

2019 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.

To fulfill the California Promise: Opportunity for All, the state should pursue: fiscal stability for government programs and spending; putting California on a path to increase available housing; workplace flexibility—including mutually agreed upon options for workers and independent contractors; fostering a skilled, well-prepared workforce; and keeping energy affordable by minimizing costs due to California’s climate change policy.
