NFIB California Main Street Minute

Date: October 12, 2020

For the legislative and political week of October 12-16

Welcome to the October 12 edition of the NFIB California Main Street Minute from your small-business advocacy team in Sacramento.

  • With the Legislature closed for business and the time for the governor to act on bills sent to him passed, all activity turns to Election Day, less than a month away.
  • NFIB California will start this week by sending out its final three legislative endorsement news releases, all for seats in the State Assembly: Kelly Seyarto in District 67; Janet Nguyen in District 72; and Melanie Burkholder in District 76.
  • NFIB members received their 2020 Election Voter Guide this past week. Quick Election Resource Information:

  • Kris Ankarlo, host of iHeart Radio’s Propositioned Podcasts, interviews State Director John Kabateck and five other guests about Proposition 15, which NFIB CA opposes and will raise property taxes on small businesses. You can listen to the half-hour podcast here.
  • This week, Kabateck will sit down with reporters and editors of the Southern California edition of The Epoch Times.


  • Next NFIB Webinar: Automatic Forgiveness Update and Ask the CPA – Covid-19 Small Biz Tax Tips: PPP and Beyond. Presented by Martin Abo, CPA/ABV/CVA/CFF, Managing Member of Abo and Company, LLC – Certified Public Accountants, Holly Wade, Executive Director, NFIB Research Center, Elizabeth Milito, Senior Executive Counsel, Legal Foundation, NFIB. Wednesday, October 14, 9 a.m. Pacific. Register here.
  • So, what’s happening with congressional efforts on providing small-business owners with liability protection against unfair and impossible-to-substantiate COVID 19 lawsuits thrown at them? This guest editorial in The Colorado Sun will give you the latest, and where you see the word ‘Colorado’ in the piece, you can substitute the word ‘California’ in its place, because the Golden State is very much like its Rocky Mountain counterpart on the issue.
