News & Updates - California Business Roundtable President Releases Statement in Response to Governor Brown’s Inaugural Address

Sacramento – Rob Lapsley, president of the California Business Roudtable today released the following statement in response to Governor Brown’s inaugural address:

“We congratulate the Governor on his leadership as he embarks on his historic fourth term. The next four years will bring an unprecedented opportunity to make progress on issues that will leave his leadership stamp on California in a way that no other Governor has in the past — or likely will in the future.

As California faces a continued uneven economic recovery and high levels of poverty, aggressive policy reforms can unleash investment and job growth that will provide revenues to fund education, health care, infrastructure, social services, pensions and debt repayment far into the future. From the perspective of the members of the California Business Roundtable, we believe this is a far better approach then layering on new regulations and increasing  business costs which would not only make California more economically uncompetitive but it will also stifle/prevent the middle class job growth we need for future generations of Californians.”
