Bills identified as job creators are consistent with the goals outlined in the Foundation for a Better California, a guide which provides policymakers with a framework to position California competitively to take advantage of the econom -ic recovery. Since 2008, the CalCham -ber has identified bills that will improve the state’s job climate and stimulate the economy, designating these proposals as job creators. In general, the job creator bills include solutions that will enhance the state’s economy by, for example: • significantly reducing costs to employers; • providing balanced regulatory policies; • reforming the legal climate; • increasing construction jobs; and encouraging investments. CalChamber may add more bills to the list in the coming weeks as legislation is amended.

As California weathered the global economic crisis, it was forced to make drastic cuts to the court system, resulting in costly delays and courtroom closures. Funding these judge -ships will begin to reverse the substantial loss incurred by our justice system. The Legislature previously authorized 50 additional judg -es to meet the shortage without directing any specific funds towards them. Previous efforts by the Legislature to direct funding towards these positions Scan QR code with a smart phone to access smart reader I thank my colleagues for recognizing the critical nature of fixing the judge shortage by approving SB 229, The delivery of justice in a timely and equi -table manner is a critical issue, have been unsuccessful. SB 229 would take a measured approach by directing the fund -ing of 10 trial court judges of the 50 total authorized by the Legislature and one appellate court justice. SB 229 ensures the positions are funded based on the Judicial Council of Cali -fornia’s need-based standards. Per these standards, three addi -tional judges and one appel -late court justice in Riverside County, as well as three addi -tional judges in San Bernardino County, would be funded. The Legislature would continue to work to fund the remaining 40 unfunded, previ -ously authorized judgeships. This is an access to justice issue. By funding addition -al judges to meet a critical and growing need, SB 229 is the first step in ensuring justice is delivered in a timely and equi -table manner. I am looking forward to a thorough discus -sion on this issue and to work -ing with my colleagues in the Legislature as SB 229 moves forward.” SB 229 now moves to the Senate Committee on Appro-priations which will review the bill’s fiscal impact.
