Re: AB 2723 (Medina) – Support
Hearing: April 9

Dear Assemblymember Frazier:

The below listed organizations support AB 2723 (Medina) to modify the state rulemaking process to require state agencies to consider the effect of major regulations on sole proprietorships and other small businesses, when assessing the economic impact of a proposed major regulation on new business formation or elimination of existing businesses.

Small businesses are the job creation engine of the California economy and they may be disproportionately impacted by regulations. AB 2723 takes an important step to better understand those impacts and encourage development of a more favorable regulatory climate.

We urge your support for AB 2723.

If you have questions or comments, you may contact Dorothy Rothrock, CMTA Vice President, Government Relations, at 916-498-3319 or [email protected]
