Attendees met with leaders in the California General Assembly and Senate, imparting their experiences, challenges and good-news stories from operating small businesses. Topics discussed included legal-process reform, protecting small businesses from meritless and frivolous lawsuits, water infrastructure and the continuing impacts of the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act.

Bradford White’s Erick Truskoski educated policy-makers on the challenges brought on by the California Energy Commission revisions to Title 24’s strict new energy efficiency requirements for water heaters.
