Small Business Gets a Boost Under Quirk-Silva Legislation
(Sacramento) – California small businesses would get a boost under legislation authored by Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva (D-Orange County). Assembly Bill 2463, co-authored by Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona), would create the Small Business Assistance Program to provide matching funds to federally designated small business assistance centers. The proposed 2018-19 budget includes $20-million per year for five years to fund the program. “We believe that this particular legislation is going to make a huge impact for our small businesses,” Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva said.
