San Diego Business Journal: Battle Over Legal Reform Goes on Offense

San Diego Regional Director Lorie Zapf had a commentary published in the San Diego Business Journal titled, "Battle Over Legal Reform Goes on Offense."   Zapf highlighted the three key refoms the governor says he plans to ask the state legislature to address this session in order to bring both fairness and predictability to business owners. Here is what she had to say:

"Reforming our legal system is one of the most overlooked, yet powerful and effective ways California lawmakers can help small businesses grow and local economies thrive. Now Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger recognizes that legal reform is integral to helping businesses flourish and create jobs.

"He has included legal reform as a top priority in his California Jobs Initiative, which calls for creating or retaining 100,000 jobs. The initiative also calls for eliminating frivolous lawsuits that punish California’s small businesses, saying, “Unfair and frivolous suits impact where companies locate or expand.”

"Government policy should create the conditions necessary for businesses to thrive and create jobs … not pile on more taxation, regulation and litigation that kill jobs and hurt small business."
