Small Businesses Haunted by New Taxes and MandatesNFIB California has released its final "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly" update for 2017, which identifies legislation that will have the greatest impact, either negative or positive, to the 3.8 million small businesses across California.
NFIB Reacts to Assembly Passing ‘Ban the Box’ MandateWe are deeply concerned with the passage of AB 1008 and are urging Governor Jerry Brown to veto this bill which interferes with a small business owner’s ability to fill open positions, imposes new onerous requirements, and subjects them to new potential legal liabilities.
NFIB Reacts to Assembly Passing Important Prop. 65 ReformWe are pleased with the passage of AB 1583 and are urging Governor Jerry Brown to sign this bill as it would promote fairness and transparency in lawsuits brought under The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also known as Proposition 65.
NFIB Reacts to Assembly Penalizing Employers for Cooperating with ICE AgentsWe are deeply concerned with the passage of AB 450 and are urging Governor Jerry Brown to veto this bill as it places employers in a no-win situation between federal immigration enforcement officers and state labor enforcement officials by punishing employers for simply cooperating with federal immigration enforcement officers who appear at their workplace.
