Legislative Vote Record

As we prepare to enter into the second year of the 2013-14 legislative session, we thought it may be helpful to provide this legislative vote record issued by the California Chamber of Commerce.

If you have any questions on this issue, please do not hesitate to contact Jason Lane, CBA’s vice president, government relations, at or (916) 438-4420.
