RE: AB 255 (Muratsuchi) Update
As you know, BizFed took a position to oppose AB 255 (Muratsuchi), legislation known as the COVID-19 Emergency Small Business Eviction and Rent Relief Act, at its 4/23 BizFed Executive Committee meeting.
Recently, we have learned that per ongoing conversations between the California Business Properties Association (CBPA) and its affiliates, the author has confirmed he will be taking amendments in the Assembly Judiciary Committee to address many of the concerns the CBPA have raised. As a result, the CBPA and its affiliates are prepared to remove their opposition tomorrow in Assembly Judiciary Committee, the next hearing of AB 255 (Muratsuchi).
As you are also aware, in order for BizFed to support, oppose or amend policy positions, it must be taken up by our Board members for action. Therefore, BizFed will remain in opposition until our upcoming BizFed Executive Board call on 5/10.
