Fighting job killing measures
Antelope Valley, CA -Senator Steve Knight is proud to announce he was awarded an A+ from the California Chamber of Commerce for voting against bills that the business organization deemed "job killer" measures, and he earned a 100% ranking on job creation as well.
could never support legislation that will so negatively affect businesses, small and large, no matter how nicely packaged.
Here's the rundown on the bills:
SB 935 seeks to readjust state minimum wage increases, which were increased on July 1 to $9 an hour with another increase to $10 an hour in January 2016 according to current law.
SB 935 would reset the increases to $11 in January 2015, $12 in 2016 and $13 in 2017.
has grave reservations about this measure as it supersedes a previous bill that already increases the minimum wage and he
is concerned it will have a domino effect detrimental to the business community.
SB 1021 would allow school districts to create a "split roll" and charge higher parcel taxes for commercial properties compared to residential properties.
couldn't support this measure at all and neither could the California Chamber of Commerce
and the Los Angeles Economic Development Council
, who all vigorously opposed the bill along with several Democrats who crossed party lines to defeat it.
Our corporate tax rates are already the highest in the country and Senator Knight
couldn't support what was the most obvious job killer on the table.
Thankfully, SB 1372 was defeated in the Senate 19-17.
