California Chamber Awards Huff with Perfect Ranking
Senator Recognized for Efforts to Support Business and Create Jobs
SACRAMENTO: The California Chamber of Commerce has awarded the highest of scores to Senator Bob Huff (R-San Dimas) for his unquestioned support for business owners and the business community in the State Legislature. Senator Huff not only received a perfect score in the just released California Chamber 2015 Scorecard, but was also recognized as a top recipient in the “Best Business Votes” category. He earned the perfect score by supporting legislative measures designed to spur economic growth and job development, and opposing bills that sought to impose new burdens, mandates, taxes and fees on business.
The Industry Manufacturers Council will be losing a friend and strong supporter for business when Senator Huff leaves office due to term limits,” said Don Sachs, Executive Director and C.E.O. of the Industry Manufacturers Council. “He is well deserving of this recognition from the California Chamber.”
The California Chamber 2015 Scorecard contains 13 bills, and the Chamber says Senator Huff’s votes on these measures reflect his positive “attitudes toward private enterprise, fiscal responsibility and the business climate.”
This is the 41st vote record that the California Chamber of Commerce has compiled. They publish this report in response to numerous requests by member firms and local chambers of commerce that would like a gauge by which to measure the performance of their legislators.
“Senator Huff’s pro-business record reflects his understanding of major issues that are of great concern to both large and small companies,” said Allan Zaremberg, Chief Executive Officer of the California Chamber.
Senator Huff earned his perfect score by supporting job creation measures like AB 1506, which will limit frivolous and costly litigation against employers for technical violations on an itemized wage statement that does not create any injury to an employee. He was also cited for opposing “job killer” bills such as SB 654, which sought to create an unworkable permitting process for hazardous waste facilities.
“This award is indeed an honor for me because new job and business creation has always been, and will continue to be, one of my top priorities for my district and all of California,” said Senator Huff. “I understand the challenges that many business owners face, and will continue to fight on their behalf.”
Senator Huff represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. Follow Senator Huff on Twitter at @bobhuff99.
