When Did That Happen?

Unfortunately, many are sadly uninformed about what happens in our State government. The laws and regulations that affect our pocketbooks and the manner in which we work and operate our businesses are written, talked about, and shuffled around in Sacramento with most of us being totally unaware. We hear about laws being passed when it is too late and have already been enacted. Too late! Too bad!

Then Assemblyman (now Senator) Lou Correa said it best 12 years ago when he told an assembled group of beauty professionals, "If we don't do it for you . . . we will do it to you!" pointing up the importance of having a cohesive industry voice in Sacramento.

Have you Heard?

Gossip, rumor and second hand news is nothing but trouble. Information passing from one teller to the next means each teller adding their own misinformation into it. Like the game of 'telephone', by the time you get that information it looks very little like reality. Lots of opinions' added and important details omitted. Guaranteed . . . not accurate.

Find Out for Yourself!
