'Job Killer' Bills Killed in Legislative Session

Posted: Updated:

Every year, the California Chamber of Commerce releases its list of bills it deems "job killers," legislation it says will decimate economic growth in California.

On Monday, the CalChamber is celebrating a bit of a victory, because only five of its list of 37 "job killer" bills survived the first half of the legislative session in Sacramento.

Gary Toebben, president of L.A.'s Chamber of Commerce, tells our investigative producer Heidi Cuda, it signals a sea change in Sacramento.

"More than six hundred thousand people who are unemployed today, were not unemployed at the start of the great recession," he says. "In L.A. County, that number exceeds two hundred thousand. That's a lot of people still looking for work. The economy of California, while recovering, is a long way from fully recovered. Their legislative representatives are now thinking about that when they vote on very important pieces of legislation."
