CAL CHAMBER NEWS
Job Killer Update: 29th Bill Will Increase California Energy Costs 
The California Chamber of Commerce has added to the job killer list a bill that recently was amended to impose on both public and investor-owned utilities an extreme, costly mandate to procure 5,000 megawatts (MW) of energy from renewable sources. Adding  AB 893  (E. Garcia; D-Coachella) brings the total number of job killer bills identified this year to 29. Currently, in addition to AB 893, only one other job killer remains active,  AB 3080  (Gonzalez Fletcher; D-San Diego), which passed the Senate last week and is awaiting action by the Governor.
