“Instead of interpreting the law, the California Supreme Court simply re-wrote it.” – Senator Shannon Grove
Senator Shannon Grove co-authored and introduced Senate Bill 238 to restore the promise of the California Dream to many hardworking taxpaying entrepreneurs. Senator Grove outlines the bill and why it is important in this CALmatters Guest Commentary:
The Senate’s Public Employment and Retirement Committee voted (1-4) to kill SB238 in its first committee hearing on Friday 4/24. However, our senator, Mike Morrell, cast the only vote in support. The committee then voted 5-0 to grant reconsideration. Reconsideration can only be granted once. This gives Senator Grove a second chance to persuade her colleagues to do the right thing and support the bill.

Following are links to the contact pages of the other members of the committee, all democrats, who voted to kill the bill in committee. Send them a message that you won’t stand by quietly and watch them wage war on our small businesses and entrepreneurs.
The action taken by these four senators affects the livelihoods of Californians in all types of industries, including barbers and hairstylists, farmers, educators, health care professionals, construction workers, and artists.
