Recently the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce signed onto coalition letters with the US Chamber to members of Congress and the FTC opposing the FTC’s proposed rule to impose a nationwide ban on almost all non-compete clauses. This rule would invalidate millions of beneficial contacts and negatively harm businesses and employees. We have also joined a letter to members of Congress encouraging permit reform in order to make it easier to build and improve infrastructure across America.
We have partnered with the CalChamber to send support letters for two pieces of legislation they have listed as Job Creator bills. SB 592, which will bolster labor law compliance, and SB 703, to allow for a flexible work schedule, are common sense policies that will greatly benefit California businesses. The Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce also sent a letter of support to Senator Niello for SB 316, allowing those who have been convicted three or more times and who are subsequently convicted of petty theft to be imprisoned in a county jail not exceeding one year. Legislation like this will enhance public safety in our community.
