“I want to thank Speaker Pérez for giving me the honor of chairing this important committee,” said Assemblymember Brown. “Our committee will focus on responding to the needs of small businesses, encouraging non-traditional lending efforts and looking for ways to update and streamline some of the state’s regulatory processes.”
With a background as a small business owner, Assemblymember Brown will draw upon her experiences to tailor legislation that will improve access to credit and technical services for small businesses owners.
