Your Help Needed: AB 257 moves to State Senate
February 7, 2022
AB 257, a bill that creates an unelected “government council” made up of political appointees, has passed in the State Assembly, barely receiving the number of votes it needed to move forward. If you haven’t already visited our website, https://notakeouttakeover.com/, take a moment to do so today. There, you can help make your voice heard about this bill, which targets California’s restaurants with an untold amount of new regulation. It would leave elected lawmakers with little say – if any – on new labor regulation passed by the council. Additionally, the bill reduces franchisees to mere middle managers rather than independent business owners, dramatically changing the current franchise model that has helped many entrepreneurs succeed.
