COVID-19 California Legislative Update: PART III

Thursday, August 13, 2020 I 10am-11am I Free For Members

It’s been a crazy year in the California legislature, with COVID-19-related shutdowns forcing our legislators to squeeze what would normally be a whole season of work into a much shorter period of time. In this webinar RJ Cervantes, our lobbyist in Sacramento, will give us an update on where things currently stand.
You’ll learn about a variety of legislative issues that might have a big impact on your business:
  • Important 2020 legislation that is still being worked on.
  • California’s COVID-19 response and further government actions under consideration.
  • The key legislative races and ballot initiatives that are on the 2020 ballot.
In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to ask your questions and have them answered live.
