Amazing. That’s really all I can say after the tremendous outpouring of support CALA received yesterday at its Day at the Capitol event.
Nearly 200 CALA supporters from all over the state came to Sacramento to urge California’s state legislature to pass legal reforms. These small business owners, community leaders and concerned citizens met with 80 legislators, and discussed badly-needed reforms to our legal system such as bills designed to stop shakedown lawsuits related to the Americans with Disabilities Act and Proposition 65. There was so much support yesterday that our event was featured on a television news story.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – when constituents and small business owners speak, legislators listen. With the help of our supporters, CALA is continuing to demonstrate to California legislators that our lawsuit system breeds abuse and hurts small businesses.
Despite our success yesterday, CALA’s work is far from over. Stay tuned to this blog, or our Facebook and Twitter pages as we track bills in the legislature and make sure that our legislators vote to create a lawsuit system that serves the interests of ordinary people – not lawyers.
