February 2015

To: Members, California Chamber of Commerce

The California Chamber of Commerce 2015 Business Issues and Legislative Guide is now available - http://links.email.calchamber.com/ctt?kn=4&ms=NDc5OTQ2NzMS1&r=NDc4MzYyMjQ3MzES1&b=2&j=NjIxMjM5MTQ0S0&mt=1&rt=0

As the California Chamber of Commerce marks its 125th anniversary, the state's economic recovery is uneven. Some industries and regions have regained the jobs lost during the recession; others remain stagnant. The well-being of state residents also is divided; nearly one in four Californians has a standard of living below the poverty level.

Within the diversity of the California economy and population, however, are the solutions that can improve daily life for all Californians. This booklet outlines ways the state can enhance economic opportunities for everyone--policies that can serve as the Foundation for a Better California:

* Keep taxes on new investment and business operations low, fair, stable and predictable.
* Reduce the regulatory and litigation costs of operating a business--especially when hiring and keeping employees.
* Reduce the cost and improve the certainty and stability of investing in new or expanded plants, equipment and technology.
* Invest in public and private works that provide the backbone for economic growth.
* Ensure the availability of high-quality skilled employees.

Less time and money diverted to unproductive, unnecessary activities will enable employers and investors to use precious resources to generate jobs instead.

We invite you to join us in reminding state leaders to keep a pro-jobs perspective. For news updates on issues affecting the economy and jobs, download the CalChamber Alert app - http://links.email.calchamber.com/ctt?kn=3&ms=NDc5OTQ2NzMS1&r=NDc4MzYyMjQ3MzES1&b=2&j=NjIxMjM5MTQ0S0&mt=1&rt=0
