Several CalChamber-tagged “Job Killer” bills that remained eligible for consideration this year failed to advance in the Assembly this month.

Falling short of votes needed to pass an Assembly policy committee was a bill that would have reduced rental housing supply, AB 1506 (Bloom; D-Santa Monica).

Held in the Assembly Appropriations Committee were an unfair scheduling mandate, AB 5 (Gonzalez Fletcher; D-San Diego and Kalra; D-San Jose), and a targeted tax on contractors, AB 43 (Thurmond; D-Richmond).

We expect to see several of these bills back in 2018 as advocates for these measures are relentless in pushing their agenda.
