Sent To Assembly Floor

FAST Recovery Act

This California Assembly Bill would establish the "Fast Food Sector Council", whose members will be appointed solely by the state government. This council would have broad powers to set labor standards: (minimum wage, working hours, health and safety standards) for all fast food restaurants. It would also require that a fast food restaurant franchisor be jointly liable for violations of its franchisee and would provide that specified laws may be enforced against a fast food restaurant franchisor to the same extent that they may be enforced against a franchisee.

Wealth Tax

This California Assembly Bill would impose an annual tax rate of 1% to all Californians with a worldwide net worth of at least $50,000,000, or at least $25,000,000 in the case of a married taxpayer filing separately. Worldwide net worth includes any asset of value owned by the taxpayer, besides a few exceptions.  It would also require every taxpayer to either declare their worldwide net worth is less than the exemption threshold or report their worldwide net worth.

Tax Increase to Fund Single-Payer Healthcare

This California constitutional amendment would impose additional taxes: (excise tax, payroll taxes, and a State Personal Income CalCare Tax ) to all Californians who make over $149,000 to fund comprehensive universal single-payer health care coverage for each resident of the state. It would also authorize the Legislature to increase any or all of these tax rates by a statute passed by majority vote of both chambers of the Legislature - rather than by a vote of 2/3rds.
