Legislative Update - ACRI Opposes AB 508

E-mail Print

ACRI is opposing AB 508 (Swanson-D).  AB 508 would prevent bid-winning companies from retaining existing employees when providing contract services.  Such an action unfairly penalizes those employees who have a long standing relationship with a company that is awarded a public bid - placing jobs at risk.  At a time when our state is facing an unprecedented high unemployment level, AB 508 translates into additional job losses in California.

ACRI is supporting AB 316 (Carter-D).  AB 316 creates a fine and punishment for the grand theft of copper.  With the prevalence of metal thefts from large construction sites, public utility yards, rural areas and schools, AB 316 will help decrease the rise of metal theft across the state.
