Democrats and Chamber of Commerce Team Up

Typically Republican organization joins with Legislative leaders for a press conference this morning

From the “huh?” department:

Senate President pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg and Assembly Speaker John A Pérez will be joined by leaders of the California Chamber of Commerce, the California Manufacturers and Technology Association and other legislators to announce proposals to improve California’s business climate and create much-needed jobs.

A press conference to detail the effort will be held today, September 1, 2011, at 11:00 a.m. in Room 317 of the State Capitol. Steinberg (D-Sacramento) and Pérez (D-Los Angeles) will be joined by Cal Chamber president and CEO Allan Zaremberg, and CMTA president Jack Stewart.

We’ll let you know more later today, but guesses are welcome.

Update: well, I guess I should have known, they’re going after “regulation”:

New business regulations proposed in California would be reviewed for their effect on the economy of the most-populous state under a bill introduced by Democratic leaders who control the state Assembly and Senate.

Ahh, that evil bastard “regulation” reaching into the cribs of jobs everywhere and strangling them.  In reality what needs to be done is to reduce duplicative regulation, where we have agencies overlapping.  If done wrong, simply to gut environmental and labor regulations, well, it will be bad.

  1. Not sure they’d go through te trouble just for show. maybe the chamber has decided that GOP blocking stuff advancs nothing?  May be the chmber wants to salvage some kind of climate for business? may be the dems realized with double-dip kicking off that blaming business hasnt bee the best for recovery?

    I’m curious to see what if anything comes from it.

  2. I think it has to do with improving our roads

    This will create construction jobs

    Where to get the money ?

    Also, it takes months or even years for these things to get going

    Still, it’s a good idea

    Washington isn’t gonna do anything for us

    California has to take its’ own future in its’ collective hands

    How about money for Public transit too ??

  3. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) was talking to colleagues about extending the same proposal to other job-producing projects, possibly including sports facility projects in Sacramento, Santa Clara and San Diego, as well as renewable energy developments.

    Anschutz Entertainment Group sought the special treatment after a competing stadium proposal in the City of Industry won an environmental waiver from the Legislature in 2009. Its backers argue that it deserves special treatment because it would create tens of thousands of jobs.
