As a non-profit organization, CalChamber represents more than 14,000 small and large businesses. For the 2020 legislative session, CalChamber highlighted several major bills which are labeled as either a “priority” or a “job killer,” including Senate Bill 1383 which places a significant burden on job creators with five or less employees to give time-off and Assembly Bill 3216 that requires new COVID-19 employment leave mandate. Senator Grove voted to oppose both legislation.
