The California Restaurant Association (CRA) Political Affairs program is comprised of five bipartisan political action committees that are the political arm of them California Restaurant industry. The five CRA political action committees support candidates and issues at the state and local levels in an effort to help elect officials sensitive to the needs of the restaurant industry while engaging in issue management to ensure broad protection of restaurant operations.
Following are some of the key issues the industry is facing:
Health care: Fighting to ensure that the financial burden of universal health care in California does not fall squarely on the backs of restaurants.
ADA: Reforming disability laws to decrease meritless lawsuits against restaurants.
Labor law: Reforming meal and rest period laws and wage and hour laws to reduce lawsuits against restaurants.
Restaurant bans: Fighting attempts to ban fast food and other restaurants in cities and counties across California.
