POLICY PROFILE
CHAMBER BUSINESS ADVOCACY COMMITTEE VOTES TO RECOMMEND SUPPORT OF WATER SUPPLY AND WATER QUALITY ACT OF 2018

The Oxnard Chamber of Commerce’s Business Advocacy Committee voted to recommend support the Water Supply and Water Quality Act of 2018 , which would require the state to sell $8.877 billion in general obligation bonds to fund water projects across the state. Citing a need for safe and reliable water supply for drinking and industrial and agriculture uses that are critical to a healthy local economy, the Committee unanimously voted in support of the proposal.  

CAL CHAMBER NEWS
COALITION FIGHTS EXPANSION OF EMPLOYMENT LITIGATION
The California Chamber of Commerce and a large coalition of employer groups and local chambers of commerce are opposing a job killer bill that bans settlement and arbitration agreements.

Today the Senate Judiciary Committee will consider AB 3080 (Gonzalez Fletcher; D-San Diego), which significantly expands employment litigation and increases costs for employers and employees by banning settlement agreements for labor and employment claims as well as arbitration agreements made as a condition of employment, which is likely preempted under the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) and will only delay the resolution of claims. Banning such agreements benefits the trial attorneys, not the employer or employee.
