Democrats Again Strangle California's Economy

SACRAMENTO – Democratic Assemblymember Kansen Chu (San Jose) recently amended Assembly Bill 398 which would create a $275 per employee tax for five years on companies that employ more than 500 workers.

Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) has the following response to the Democrats’ tax scheme:

“If Democrats continue to destroy the private business sector, they will not have the resources to fund government, including police and fire. We need private businesses to employ people, revive our economy, and get us out of the $54 billion budget deficit. The attack on private businesses has to stop,” said Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove.
