CalChamber Reports on Status of Major Business Bills

​(July 16, 2012) Numerous business priorities remain to be considered when legislators reconvene after their summer recess, according to the California Chamber of Commerce summary of the status of top priority bills for the business community.

Among the pending proposals are 10 “job killer” bills still moving through the legislative process.

The CalChamber report presents the status of bills as of July 6, when the Legislature began its summer break, plus updates on bills signed by the Governor by July 11.

Within each subject area, the list presents bills in order of priority with the highest priorities at the top.

The CalChamber will publish a second status report in September, showing the status of priority legislation when the Legislature adjourns the session on August 31.

September 30 is the last day for the Governor to sign or veto bills passed by the Legislature on or before August 31.

The CalChamber will publish its final status report, showing the ultimate fate of priority bills sent to the Governor this year, in October.

Each fall, the CalChamber also publishes a record of legislators’ votes on key bills affecting the California business climate. Generally, the bills selected for the vote record have appeared in one of the status reports. This year’s vote record is scheduled to be published on October 26.
