Every once in a while, a piece of legislation comes along that restores my hope in the elected bodies in Sacramento. Legislation that proves that they are indeed listening and care about our state’s number one job creators. Proof that they not only talk the talk, but walk the walk.
Assembly Bill 1280 by Assemblyman Brian Maienschein is one of those bills. This NFIB/CA-sponsored bill would establish a sales tax holiday for small businesses on the first Saturday following Thanksgiving, also known as Small Business Saturday, when consumers are encouraged to shop at their local mom and pop stores. To qualify, a business would have had to collect less than $200,000 in sales taxes the previous year.
