At its meeting on Monday, April 12, the Oxnard Chamber's Business Advocacy Committee (BAC) received an update from with lobbyist Fred Main on California politics and legislation straight from Sacramento. Main is a partner with Clear Advocacy LLC and provides services to the Tri-County Chambers Alliance, which covers Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties. Despite the focus on reopening the state, legislators are busy processing about 2.000 bills that were introduced this year. Legislation seems to be moving faster through the Capitol this year, according to Main.
