NFIB California Main Street Minute

Date: October 05, 2020

For the legislative and political week of October 5-9

Welcome to the October 5 edition of the NFIB California Main Street Minute from your small-business advocacy team in Sacramento.

  • A new Legislature meets December 7 for organizing purposes and starts its 2021-2022 session Jan. 4, 2021. The deadline for Gov. Gavin Newsom to sign or veto bills passed September 30.
  • NFIB California looked back on the 2020 half of the prior session and highlighted seven bills most impactful for small business, which were put under the categories of Good, Bad & Ugly.

Another Highly Active Media Week

  • The Citizens Journal, the online news site for Ventura County, ran NFIB’s news release – in its entirety — announcing NFIB California’s latest podcast and on the same day, also republished our news release on NFIB’s poll showing nearly 90% of small business owners opposed to Prop. 21, which would expand rent control.
  • The Northern California Record wanted NFIB’s take on the signing of Senate Bill 1159 into law, which creates a rebuttable presumption that workers became infected with COVID 19 on the job, for a September 28 story, and for a September 29 story, it profiled NFIB’s disappointment in the governor’s signing of Senate Bill 1383 into law, great expanding leave time.
  • Associated Press used a quote in an NFIB California news release for an October 3 national story on Andrew Yang’s role in the Proposition 24 ballot initiative.

Nationally

  • NFIB has a one-click feature to send your U.S. House Representative and U.S. Senator an email asking them to support another round of financial assistance for small businesses. “More than 1 in 5 small businesses won’t survive another six months under current economic conditions and nearly half of small business owners anticipate needing additional financial assistance in the next year.”
  • Did you miss last Wednesday’s webinar on “How to Complete a PPP Forgiveness Application”? You can watch it here.
