  • Inland Empire Chamber Alliance Legislative Update

    The Inland Empire Chamber alliance announces its opposition to a proposed $2.5 billion tax increase on California business and residents. It also voices its support for legislation that would provide employees with flexibility on their work schedule, notices to business regarding COVID-19 restrictions and updates to rules regarding collector vehicles. 
    AB 71: Tax Increase - Oppose
    This bill proposes $2.4 billion-a-year tax increase on California businesses and residents by raising the corporate tax rate for businesses with taxable income over $5 million. 
    AB 220: Smog Check Exemption for Classic Cars - Support
    This bill would update current law to exempt all motor vehicles manufactured prior to 1983 instead of 1976 from the smog check requirement in order to keep up with the definition of “classic or antique car”.
    AB 230: Flexible Works Schedules - Support
    This bill would allow an individual employee to request a flexible work schedule providing for work days up to 10 hours per day within a 40-hour workweek.
    SB 336: COVID-19 Notification Requirements - Support
    This bill would require that before state or a local health official takes measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, they publish the measures for 72 hours on their internet website and reach out to local organizations representing local business interests.
