“One priority for a healthy business is the ability to plan,” said Assemblyman Ken Cooley.  “Licensure costs and other fees are usually manageable, if the owners can anticipate them and plan for their eventual payment.

Assemblyman Ken Cooley worked with Governor Brown and bill authors Senators DeSaulnier and Emmerson, to speed SB 509 through the Assembly enabling 500 jobs in Rancho Cordova to come on-line.  Assemblyman Cooley shepherded this urgency measure, which took three months to navigate the Senate, through the Assembly in less than 3 weeks to allow it to become law before July 1st.

Governor Brown signed the urgency bill Monday night to ensure that Covered California submits fingerprint images and related information to the Department of Justice to obtain criminal history information on its prospective employees who will assist Californians in their health insurance choices.  This bill was a mandatory requirement for employees handling sensitive personal information of applicants’ medical and financial information.
