Dear Governor Jerry Brown:
Dear State Assembly Member Joan Buchanan:
Dear State Senator Lois Wolk:
I am writing to ask you to support AB 484 (Alejo), which was recently amended in the Senate to help protect jobs in some of California’s most economically depressed areas.
This bill will help ensure businesses within an Enterprise Zone can continue receiving uninterrupted program benefits until such time as the Department of Housing and Community Development has completed regulatory and administrative review of the program, issued a request for proposal and issued conditional designation letters to the maximum number of Enterprise Zones within the state.
Not only is the Enterprise Zone program vital to economic development, the benefits of the program help our businesses offset costs and encourage expansion or hiring of new employees. Enterprise Zones deliver numerous benefits for employees and employers. AB 484 is a bridge to help two zones with high unemployment and improve economic stability in these distressed areas.
AB 484 ensures that employees and struggling businesses do not fall victim to bureaucratic and political delays. Our state is still struggling to pull itself out of this recession. Every job counts. AB 484 is vitally important to these economically depressed regions.
For these reasons, I strongly urge you to support AB 484.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Mr. Gregory Pitsch
