2017 Summer Recess Edition

Many of the proposed exemptions with local revenue loss will not move forward, including: Textbooks (AB 960/ Brough), Feminine Products (AB 9/ Garcia and AB 479/ Gonzalez-Fletcher), Used Electric Vehicles (SB 79/ Allen), Garment Alterations (AB 1072/ Brough), and First Responder Vehicle Equipment (AB 561/ Voepel). The new law expanding California’s cap-and-trade program excludes local revenues from the exemption for electric power companies paying the sales and use tax on equipment purchases (AB 398/ Garcia).
