California Summit 2014

Bettering California's Business Climate

Thursday, November 20, 2014 / 9:15 am - 10:15 am

To set the stage for the Summit, the Milken Institute asked some of the state's most influential business and policy leaders to offer concrete ways to put California on firmer financial footing while combating its reputation for being unfriendly to business. The question encompasses steps Sacramento can take to improve the investment climate, such as tackling the government's long-term financial obligations and doing away with unpredictable legislation and overlapping or duplicative compliance requirements. Our panel will explore the key economic and business climate issues facing the state and provide a roadmap for lawmakers to steer California toward a more prosperous future.
