Members of the CalChamber Board of Directors hear presentations from Karen Ross, secretary of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and Senator Bob Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys) at the March dinner and meeting. Ross says the diversity of California’s multibillion-dollar agricultural industry has been of some help in coping with the fourth consecutive drought year. Hertzberg explains why he introduced SB 8 to serve as the basis for a discussion on changing the mix of taxes in the state budget in order to generate more revenue.
