SACRAMENTO – The California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber) has awarded Senator Patricia Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) a high score in its 2020 Vote Record on issues important to the state’s job creators.
“I am pleased to be recognized by CalChamber yet again for my work to protect economic growth and opportunity in California,” said Senator Bates, a former small business owner. “CalChamber’s vote record provides Californians a useful measuring stick to judge their legislators on how they vote on economic issues. I encourage Californians to check out their legislators’ votes and compare them with their rhetoric on jobs.”
CalChamber is a non-profit organization representing more than 14,000 companies of all sizes. It highlighted 10 bills in the Senate this year that were deemed a priority, including opposition to AB 3216 (Kalra) that would have imposed an onerous process for some employers to return employees to the workforce.
