Assemblyman Mike Morrell Earns Perfect Marks

from California Chamber of Commerce

Lawmaker Receives 100 Percent Score for Pro-Jobs Votes


SACRAMENTO – In its annual assessment of legislators’ votes during the past year, the California Chamber of Commerce recognized Assemblyman Mike Morrell, R-Rancho Cucamonga, for his perfect record supporting pro-jobs legislation and fighting job killer proposals in 2013.


“To return our economy to full strength, we have to get Californians back to work,” said Assemblyman Morrell. “It’s especially important in the Inland Empire, where in many places, the unemployment rates remain well above the state and national averages. The Legislature needs to make job creation a top priority again and stop passing legislation that only slows down economic growth and investment in our communities.”


Each year, the California Chamber of Commerce releases an analysis of bills from the most recent legislative session that are of particular interest to California employers. The 2013 list included 14 measures covering issues regarding civil litigation, economic development, environmental regulation, health insurance costs, and labor and employment mandates. Assemblyman Morrell earned a perfect 14-0 for his votes this year.


“I’m proud of my record standing with California’s job creators,” continued Assemblyman Morrell, “and I’m especially pleased that my colleagues and I were able to stop almost every job-killing measure proposed this past year. I look forward to carrying that same resolve into the next session.”


Earlier this year, Assemblyman Morrell joint-authored Assembly Bill 1085 with Assemblywoman Beth Gaines, R-Rocklin, that would have helped prepare California’s future workforce by restoring Cal Grant award amounts that were cut as part of the 2012-13 state budget for students attending eligible private colleges, universities, and trade schools.


Assemblyman Mike Morrell, R-Rancho Cucamonga, represents the 40th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the cities of Redlands, Highland, Loma Linda, and portions of San Bernardino and Rancho Cucamonga
