The Legislature returned from the Labor Day weekend for the final two weeks of session in 2017 that concludes on September 15th. In the next nine work days, legislators will decide the fate of hundreds of bills, including many that impact the costs and operations of California manufacturers. 

CMTA supports policies that will keep all manufacturers competitive and productive in California. A thriving manufacturing industry strengthens the state’s middle class by providing careers with wages averaging $83,000 or more annually. The manufacturing industry stimulates innovation by advancing emerging technologies for increased productivity and efficiency. The bills at this link will have an impact on the state’s 30,000 manufacturers that employ 1.3 million Californians and produce 11 percent of its GDP.

CMTA provides this list in order to help you track some of the most significant bills pending before the Legislature in the final days of legislative session in 2017.
