 CalTrade Report - California State Senate Passes Anti-Outsourcing Legislation
SACRAMENTO - 08/25/04 - The California State Senate has passed a controversial bill aimed at keeping California companies from "outsourcing" jobs, despite the fact that an unreleased report commissioned by the leadership of the State Assembly said that such legislation, if approved, would cost the state more jobs than it saved.
Several other anti- "outsourcing" or "off-shoring" measures are currently working their way through the legislature including one that would prohibit the state Office of Homeland Security from having any of its work done abroad, while another would require all companies doing business in California to report how many employees worked out of the country.
The report was commissioned in April from the Public Policy Institute of California, a San Francisco-based nonpartisan group, and sides largely with arguments against the legislation put forward by the minority Republican members of both the Assembly and Senate.
