California State Assemblyman V. Manuel Perez published an editorial this week, in which he praises many aspects of the Governor Jerry Brown’s budget. He expresses concern, however, about the proposed regulatory changes to the state’s Enterprise Zone program.
“The state’s economic outlook is positive, but we have a way to go to ensure recovery takes hold throughout the state. For this reason, I am concerned about proposed regulatory changes to the state’s Enterprise Zone program.”
Assemblyman Perez chose not to discuss the specific regulatory changes that concern him. My own review of the regulations, however, revealed provisions that will cause significant damage. I intend to discuss these soon in The WOTC Planet.
Assembly V. Manual Perez is the Democratic Whip of the California State Assembly and the former chair of the Assembly Committee on Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy.
