Sen. Steinberg to announce legislation to streamline regulations

Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg will announce on Wednesday, Feb. 16, the introduction of legislation reforming California’s duplicative and burdensome business regulations. Sen. Steinberg will be joined by authors of the proposed bill, Sen. Ron Calderon, D-Montebello, and Sen. Fran Pavley, D-Santa Monica.

The news conference will be held 10:30 a.m. at the Sacramento Metro Chamber offices, One Capitol Mall Suite 300, Sacramento.

The announcement comes after three weeks of meetings that Metro Chamber members held with Sen. Steinberg at his invitation to discover how state offices and departments can reduce duplicative regulations and streamline the regulatory process. Further meetings are scheduled over the next few weeks.

“We are both grateful and encouraged to have the opportunity to review our business regulatory concerns with Sen. Steinberg,” said Matthew Mahood, president & CEO. “This process has created an on-going dialogue where we can candidly address the most significant burdens to business and actively look for solutions to improve our regulatory environment and business climate.”

Metro Chamber members have launched the Reform-Relief-Responsibility initiative to make recommendations to elected leaders on how the state can solve its budget crisis while helping business create more jobs and increase business activity.

“Our members will bring a complete pro-jobs agenda to legislators during our State Legislative Summit next week, Feb. 22,” Mahood said. An overview of these proposals can be seen here.
