Join the Government & Fiscal Affairs Council for a conversation with Los Angeles City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez to discuss steps the L.A. City Council is taking to tackle enforcement policies against cannabis businesses operating illegally. As part of our overall advocacy on behalf of the industry, the Chamber strongly supports enforcement of established laws in order to ensure the success of the legal market and product safety for consumers. Councilwoman Rodriguez has taken a strong position on enforcement policies through her role as chair of the City's public safety committee. 
Joining Councilwoman Rodriguez will be Ruben Flores from the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) to speak on cannabis tax policy at the state level and how this affects businesses here in L.A. The DCTFA administers California's cannabis taxes. 

We will also be summarizing our recent ACCESS Sacramento trip and looking for members to participate in a draft of best practices on paid parental leave to present to the L.A. City Council.
The Government & Fiscal Affairs Council serves as the Chamber's primary committee to evaluate legislation and policies that affect the broad business community and civic life including taxes, regulations and government reforms. They meet monthly to monitor and act on general business regulatory issues and focus on L.A. City public policy issues. 
All Council meetings are open to Chamber members only. Media and guests are only allowed with prior approval.
