In the closing weeks (or months) of California’s 2010 legislative
session, there are some easy decisions to make in a morass of tough
budgetary ones. Lawmakers can get control of the state’s spiraling
regulatory environment and reconsider simple concepts on economic
analysis on new and existing regulations.
Dozens of bills died in the last few months that would demonstrate the
state’s commitment to improve government decision making and signal
that California welcomes long-term job creation and economic growth.
What can possibly be wrong with arming a jobs-sensitive legislature
with job-impact information so they can make informed decisions?
A flyer — titled Still Waiting — and a copy of a previous letter
— supported by more than 350 companies — were distributed this week
to the Legislature to reinforce that the employer community is still
waiting for these very simple and obvious measures.
