Assemblymember Phil Ting, Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee, will convene a hearing Monday on California’s economic recovery after the coronavirus emergency.
“We can’t just flip a light switch on and hope everything will be back to normal,” said Ting. “It’s going to be a long road ahead to build the economy back up, and California needs a plan to support our small businesses and ensure working families have the means to survive. Let’s hear from experts who can guide us toward accomplishing this safely and effectively.”
The hearing is scheduled for Monday, April 27 at 10 a.m. at the California State Capitol in Sacramento, Room 4202.
Panelists are scheduled to include: Jerry Nickelsburg, UCLA Anderson Forecast; Rodney Fong, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce; David Ahlem, Hilmar Cheese Company, Inc.; Saru Jayaraman, OneFair Wage; Gabe Petek, Legislative Analyst’s Office; Chris Hoene, California Budget and Policy Center; and Vivek Viswanathan, Department of Finance.
The Capitol will be open for this hearing. But given the guidance on physical distancing, seating will be very limited for the public and media. All are encouraged to watch the hearing via livestream on the Assembly’s website. The Committee will be taking public comment by telephone: 1-877-692-8957; Access Code 48 53 20.
