CalChamber Issues Vote Record on Major Bills 2012

(October 22, 2011) The California Chamber of Commerce has released a report of California legislators’ floor votes for the second year of the 2011-12 legislative session, focusing on priority bills to the state’s business community.

This is the 38th vote record the CalChamber has compiled. The CalChamber publishes this report in response to numerous requests by member firms and local chambers of commerce that would like a gauge by which to measure the performance their legislators.

To help readers assess legislators’ vote records, the charts group bills into six areas: economic development, environmental regulation, labor and employment, legal, taxation and workers’ compensation.

Most bills in this report cover major business issues that are of great concern to both small and large companies. This vote record covers 10 votes in the Senate and 11 votes in the Assembly.

The CalChamber recognizes that there are many bills supported or opposed by business that are not included in this vote record and analysis.

The vote record also includes a list showing how often legislators voted in accord with the CalChamber position on legislation.
