CAL CHAMBER NEWS
Legislature Returns from Summer Recess to Consider Job Killer Bills
The California State Assembly and Senate return today from their month-long summer recess and will consider the remaining job killer bills over the next several weeks.

The next significant deadline for the job killer bills is August 17, the date by which fiscal committees must send the bills along for consideration by the entire Senate or Assembly.

In addition, seven tax-related job killer bills remain alive because they were not subject to the July 6 deadline for bills to pass policy committees and move to fiscal committees.
Although they still are eligible for consideration, they are not set for hearings at this time.
