Legislative Briefings and Elected Official Meetings Set Political Agenda for Grocers
|Thank you to all who joined us at this week’s Grocers Day event in Sacramento! Grocers Day looked a little different this year. |
Attendees gathered at the Citizen Hotel and heard from a diverse set of speakers on what to expect in 2022. Members were given the opportunity to ask questions and share concerns directly to speakers.
Asm. Republican Leader James Gallagher (R-03) shared his party’s priorities for the year ahead, citing PAGA reform, the homelessness crisis, theft and crime, and cost of living as top of mind issues. Christy Wilson (Wilson Public Affairs) provided a comprehensive update on the campaign to reform and replace PAGA and talked about what our industry can do to help get our measure on the November ballot for 2022. Robert Moutrie (CalChamber) shared his insight on what businesses can expect of future CalOSHA workplace safety regulations.
Asm. Phil Ting (D-19) sat down with Louie Brown (Kahn, Soares & Conway LLP) for a fireside chat where they covered the budget surplus, redistricting, and the “Great Resignation” of lawmakers.
Lastly, CGA’s very own Kelly Ash and Michel LeClerc (GR Committee Chair) discussed all things related to the CGA PAC and 2022 elections. Thank you to our wonderful speakers, sponsors, and attendees for another successful Grocers Day!
