2022 Job Killers – Final Status

(October 7, 2023) In 2022, the California Chamber of Commerce identified 19 job killer bills, voicing concern that the bills reflected a lack of appreciation of the economic realities and regulatory challenges employers—and especially small business employers—face as they continue to emerge from the impacts of the pandemic.

Strong opposition from the CalChamber, business allies and pro-jobs legislators prevented 17 of 19  job killer bills from moving as originally proposed.

Just two bills identified as job killers passed the Legislature. Both were signed by the Governor.
