BILL HINDERING NONPROFITS DEFEATED

Over the past several weeks, SCG’s Public Policy  Committee and our on-staff policy team worked with partners in the philanthropic and nonprofit communities to defeat Assembly Bill 2855 (Frazier). Requiring charities to post a link to the Attorney General’s website on all webpages and include the AG’s link on all printed materials, this legislation would have inhibited the good work of our grantees and created unnecessary expenses. The nonpartisan analysis by the Appropriations Committee called the bill “unduly onerous” and the Committee did not advance the bill forward.
