VICA Members Discuss Workers' Comp and Health Care in Sacramento
Annual two-day Destination Sacramento trip included Host Breakfast with Gov. Jerry Brown
VICA's annual two-day advocacy trip to Sacramento was jam-packed with meetings with state legislators discussing legislation important to Valley businesses. VICA, together with the Greater San Fernando Valley Chamber of Commerce, presented issues including health care coverage for small business, the groups' support for workers' compensation reform and opposition to sunset clauses for tax credits. The delegation also presented its opposition to a soda tax, which was stopped in committee the following day. The full day of advocacy kicked off with the 88th annual Sacramento Host Breakfast, where Gov. Jerry Brown spoke to an audience of more than one thousand members of business groups around the state. VICA delegates met with Senators Alex Padilla and Fran Pavley; Assemblymembers Bob Blumenfield, Steve Fox, Marc Levine, Adrin Nazarian and Scott Wilk; and representatives from the offices of Senator Ted Lieu and Assemblymember Richard Bloom.
