Cooley


AB 12 by Assembly Member Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova) has been scheduled for hearing on March 22nd at 9am by the Assembly Accountability and Administrative Review Committee. The bill requires all state agencies to review their respective regulations to identify any that are duplicative, overlapping, inconsistent, or out of date by January 1, 2020. The agencies are then to revise those regulations and issue a report to the Legislature and Governor.

CMTA agrees with the author, as does the Little Hoover Commission, economists and business owners, that the look-back mechanism the bill creates will strengthen the accountability and transparency of the regulatory process. A healthy regulatory climate in California is critical to CMTA’s goal of ensuring that the state’s manufacturers operate in a framework that incentivizes investment, creates compliance, and encourages entrepreneurship.

CMTA has been lobbying the issue and will testify before legislators on the impact that stifling regulation has had on manufacturers at this hearing. If your company has dealt with duplicative, contradictory, or outdated regulations please contact Jarrell Cook, Associate Policy Director for Governmental Relations, at jcook@cmta.net or by phone 916-498-3356, so that CMTA can make sure that your experience is heard, anonymously if that’s preferred.
