Legislative Action Alert: Tell Gov. Brown to Veto or Sign these Bills!

Posted September 26th, 2017 | Status:


We are so close to to the end…we can’t let up just yet. Please ask Governor Brown to heed our direction on the pending laws that we care the most about. The bills listed below will have significant impacts on California’s economy and to our regional business community.

Fifteen (15) of BizFed’s priority bills have passed the Legislature and are either at Governor Brown’s desk or on their way to his desk.  The Governor has up to 12 days upon receipt of the bill to: sign bill, veto bill or bill becomes law without his signature.

BizFed sent letters to Gov. Brown requesting to either SIGN or VETO these 15 bills according to the views of our massive grassroots coalition. Please copy lara.larramendi@bizfed.org when you send your emails or letters to Gov. Brown. Now is the time to show our collective voices and push hard.
