CELEBRATING 110 YEARS OF PROGRESS AND PRIDE!

The year was 1908.
 
The Ford Motor Company produced the first “Model T” at its Detroit factory. The first Boy Scout handbook, “Scouting for Boys” was published. It was the first time a ball, signifying the new year, dropped in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. And, the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce was created--just five years after the City of Oxnard was incorporated by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors. 

"SAVE THE DATE"

CAL CHAMBER NEWS
Recap at Summer Break Shows Mixed Results
More Battles Ahead When Legislators Return

A review of action on major legislation for business before the Legislature began its summer recess on July 6 shows both good and disappointing outcomes for the employer community.

On the plus side was the passage of California Chamber of Commerce-supported job creator education and film tax credit bills as part of the state budget package (see  June 29 Alert), as well as a CalChamber-sponsored job creator that enables businesses to avoid hiring repeat sexual harassment offenders.
