Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown Introduced Her First Bill to Assist Small Businesses

Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown Introduced Her First Bill to Assist Small Businesses

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) introduced her first bill of the legislative session yesterday, AB 285, which will expand the definition of a microenterprise.  This bill is necessary to enhance the technical services available to small businesses in California.

 

Microenterprises are business that are started for less than $35,000 and lack access to traditional loans and capital. California has three million microenterprises that employ over four million people. AB 285 will provide microenterprises with increased resources to help them grow.

 

“I’m pleased to introduce my first bill, AB 285, a bill to support small business growth and job creation in our state.  AB 285 will improve the quality of life for residents in the 47th District by promoting small business growth, which will translate to job creation within some of our district’s highest unemployment areas,” said Assemblymember Brown, “Small businesses are so important because they provide a majority of jobs and it is vital for our economy that we continue to push policies that assist in their growth. Passing this legislation will be my top priority.”

 

Under current law, a microenterprise is classified as a business with four or fewer employees including the business owner. AB 285 will allow for a firm to employ five employees including the business owner. Additionally, this bill will allow local workforce investment boards to provide entrepreneurial training programs and specialized assistance to microenterprises.

 

The bill was introduced yesterday and has been moved to the Assembly Rules Committee for assignment to the appropriate policy committee.

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) joined committee members for a hearing of the Jobs and Economic Development & the Economy (JEDE) Committee on Tuesday, February 5. JEDE is the policy committee in the State Assembly responsible for reviewing policies and legislation related to small business development, international trade and other economic development related issues.

 

The JEDE Committee includes Assemblymember Jose Medina, chair, Assemblymember Travis Allen, vice-chair, and Assemblymembers Tom Daly, Paul Fong, Steve Fox, Ben Hueso, Eric Linder, Melissa A. Melendrez, and V. Manuel Pérez. Assemblymember Ken Cooley also joined the members of the JEDE Committee for the hearing.

 

JEDE is currently tackling the state’s economy and unemployment figures by seeking job creation opportunities. During the hearing, Assemblymember Brown spoke about the importance of supporting small businesses and jobs in the Inland Empire and she indicated there are impediments to businesses.

 

“I’m glad I had the opportunity to voice concerns on behalf of the small business community in the 47th District during the hearing. Supporting small business is so important to me because small businesses provide a majority of jobs in our district. Small businesses are hurting right now and many of them are closing their doors. We need to help our small businesses by updating and streamlining some of the state’s regulatory processes,” said Assemblymember Brown.

 

Assemblymember Brown said she plans to support the JEDE Committee as they look for ways to improve our state’s economy.

Dining choices are few

I have lived in Rialto since 1969 and during that time the leadership in this community has done little or nothing to attract quality businesses.

There is no Target, Office Max, Best Buy, etc. I am amazed when I venture to north Fontana and see the businesses in the Summit Center. How did Fontana succeed when all we get from the Rialto mayor and her cronies are empty promises of a Target and an In-N-Out? One of the promises was if they built a new fire station that the land left vacant would be used to build an In-N-Out.

I am still waiting to order my double-double.

Other than Carrows and Corky’s, there is not even a good sit-down family restaurant north of Base Line. There are discount 99-cent stores and fast-food places.

What did the leadership of this community do with the money that they already had? They are bemoaning the fact that they will lose redevelopment money but what happened to the funds prior to this?

Since they squandered the funds in the past I will not support a raise in water and sewer rates and I encourage others to oppose the increase as well.

Why are we last or never at the table?

 While writing this post it looks like Frank Montes and Edgar Montes are ready to sit down and plan out some local events. Follow us and be kept up to date on all of the upcoming information on events and goings on in our area.

In Rialto we are almost always last at the table for fail to ever show up and its sad. We do have a beautiful community and were right smack in the middle of a ton of larger cities and we have the space and diverse population that would pull nice numbers for events. Not to mention 3 new schools and 2 others that are well-known and have a rich history behind them.

Food Truck Events have been pretty exclusive to Ontario, Riverside, Corona, Orange and LA Counties best we have seen of the events was the extreme westside of San Bernardino County. Thanks to Keith Kahn local food truck advocate smaller and food truck events have been popping up more and more and now we have 2 very close to Rialto. Redlands and Rancho School Districts took advantage of slow-moving County legislators and are hosting events this month to help support school programs that require funding assistance.

If it seems as if there’s another food truck festival every weekend here in the Inland Empire, it’s because there is one.
This Saturday (April 14), food trucks will be rolling in to Rancho Cucamonga for the Cougars Booster Club’s first food truck festival at Rancho Cucamonga High School, 11801 Lark Drive, Rancho Cucamonga.
The event will take place from noon to 6 p.m. on the practice football field behind the school. Admission is $5. Kids five and under are free.
An event flier promises DJs, live bands, a kids’ fun zone and 18 trucks.

Even though gourmet food trucks are not yet able to operate on a daily basis here in the Inland Empire, the food truck craze is continuing to spread, with events here almost on a weekly basis.
Redlands’ first-ever food truck event is happening from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday (April 21) at Redlands East Valley High School, 31000 E. Colton Ave., Redlands.
Our friends over at I.E. Gourmet Food Trucks have invited some of the best food trucks from L.A. and Orange counties to join I.E.-based Suite 106 Cupcakery and Cafe 2 U to tantalize your taste buds.
With thirteen trucks scheduled to be in attendance, you’ll be able to satisfy whatever you’re craving, whether it’s a peanut butter/jelly/bacon/Sriracha burger from Grill ‘Em All, grilled cheese with a twist from Rebel Bite, a fried shrimp Po’ Boy from Ragin’ Cajun or a lobster corn dog from Slummin’ Gourmet.
Admission is only $5, with proceeds benefiting the Redlands East Valley Football Program and Second Harvest Food Bank. Kids four and under are free.

Stolen Money

Below is the link to the story that soured this post:

 

http://www.newsday.com/news/nation/calif-lawmakers-switch-days-to-collect-payments-1.3538968

The link above is to an associated press story about the continued waste of money that our legislators are guilty of almost daily. The go to Sacramento only to ensure that they will make their per diem, on that cost tax payers 65,000 TAX DOLLARS. That means 65,000 less to help fix the budget problems, but the have once again lined their pockets without any regard for the voters concerns.

You know the old saying how do you know when an elected official is lieing? When their lips are moving.

Seems about right, because when its election time they will tell you why they are in Sacramento the people (lie). I’m sorry to say that democrats and Republicans are both just as bad. They are not in Sacramento for your voice they are there to line their pockets and live off the government forever. How long are we going to let these people continue to take advantage of us and destroy our cites, state & country. 5th district supervisor Josie Gonzales actually told the sun in an interview in reference to pension reform and the San Bernardino County employee union putting out a petition to make San Bernardino County supervisors a part-time job, that she had financial obligations that must be met and if the board became part-time she would step down. REALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So why are you there Mrs Gonzales?

Below are some other articles where CA is hurt and hemorrhaging and could use every penny we can find.

Employee losses due to loss of RDA’s and tight budgets:

http://www.sbsun.com/news/ci_20006550

“Rialto and Highland, for example, have found ways to keep their former Redevelopment Agency employees on the payroll, officials said.”

Mass Teacher layoffs due to 22 million dollar budget cuts:

http://www.sbsun.com/news/ci_20001266

“In a best-case scenario, reduced funding from the state will force the district to cut its 2012-2013 budget by roughly $22 million, which would mean roughly 162 employees, including teachers and administrators, would receive layoff notices before the annual March 15 notification deadline. ”

Redevelopment dollars gone without a solution:

http://www.sbsun.com/news/ci_19998785

“You hear a lot of stories about California redevelopment agencies being abused to advance the agenda of the downtown elite, but more often than not, CRAs are used for their expressed purpose, which is to address blight, serve underrepresented communities, and maybe, more importantly than anything else, provide affordable housing in regions where there isn’t enough.”
This one cracks me up, they say that their was abuse and misuse? What about what lawmakers do daily?????????
People stand up and take action before its to late. Look for lawmakers that will fight their voters convictions not their own and fight it through even if it will make relection harder.
