Senator Huff Responds to Governor’s Signature on SB 350
SACRAMENTO: Senator Bob Huff (R-San Dimas) issued the following statement in response to the Governor’s signature on SB 350:
“The goals of this legislation are noble, but at what point does being on the leading edge of environmental reforms impact our ability to create jobs? Electricity costs in California are already 50 percent higher than most other states, which is one reason why so many jobs have moved to Texas or elsewhere. SB 350 will increase the cost of doing business in California, when we already have some of the highest taxes in the nation and an increasingly burdensome regulatory structure. It puts California business at a competitive disadvantage by increasing costs and will make it harder for them to compete with out-of-state businesses.”
Senator Huff represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. Follow Senator Huff on Twitter at @bobhuff99.
