Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy Committee clear Garcia’s economic priorities
(Sacramento – CA) - This week, Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D-Coachella) successfully ushered out several of his regional economic priority bills through the Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy (JEDE) Committee. In collaboration with the current JEDE Chair, Assemblymember Quirk-Silva (D- Orange County) and other colleagues, AB 2312, AB 2463, and AB 2596 stand to enhance the 56th Assembly District’s ability to create jobs and foster overall economic growth.
Since his time as Chair of JEDE, Assemblymember Garcia worked diligently with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development to make sure that our statewide programs, like the California Competes Tax Credit, offer relief to economically underserved areas, such as Imperial County. To accomplish this, he has worked closely with local entities such as Imperial Valley Economic Development Corporation (IVEDC) to tailor policy initiatives to meet regional needs.
