Proposed Bills Could Hinder CA Job Growth
Posted April 9th, 2014 @ 4:54pm by KFBK News - Joe Michaels

The California Chamber of Commerce today released its annual list of bills it says will negatively affect the state's job climate.

The list currently includes 26 bills that the chamber says pose a serious threat to the state's economy and would dampen job growth in the state.  

Among the legislation on the "job killer" list are an Assembly bill that would require all employers - large and small - to provide all workers with paid sick leave and a Senate bill that would increase the minimum wage to $13 an hour by 2017.

Bills deemed barriers to economic development are also included.

Among them, a Senate bill that would increase the corporate tax rate on publicly held corporations and financial institutions.

All 26 of the targeted bills were authored by Democrats.

Eleven of them are carry-over bills from last year.
