2016 Issues Guide Available on Website

2016BizCoverThe California Chamber of Commerce 2016 Business Issues and Legislative Guide is available now on the CalChamber website.

This easy-to-reference publication compiles background information on policies the CalChamber has identified as the Agenda for California Prosperity.

In this election year, California continues to be a land of contradictions. Some industries and regions have regained the jobs lost during the recession; others remain stagnant. Some residents live comfortably while others struggle. Nearly one in four Californians lives in poverty.

Developing solutions for such a diverse economy and people is complex, but doable.

We want to be sure we are preparing a quality workforce that enjoys affordable health care and housing, and an improved transportation system. Not adding to employer costs is an important policy principle so that California employers can keep pace with the competition in other states and around the world.

Please join CalChamber in keeping the jobs agenda in front of your elected representatives, state and local. To stay up-to-date on the issues, be sure to keep the CalChamber Alert app on your mobile device. Download it at calchamber.com/mobile.

CalChamber preferred and executive members receiving printed copies of Alert will be receiving hard copies of the Guide in the mail. Preferred and executive members receiving the email Alert can request a hard copy by emailing alert@calchamber.com.

Additional hard copies are available for purchase ($20 each). Mail checks to the California Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 1736, Sacramento, CA 95812-1736, Attn: Business Issues.

The premier sponsor of this year’s Guide is Wells Fargo.

An e-book edition of the Guide​, compatible with smartphones and tablets, as well as desktop computers with an e-book reader, can be downloaded free here
