An act relating to small business.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 247, as introduced, Ramos. Definitions: Small Business Procurement and Contract Act.
Existing law, the Small Business Procurement and Contract Act, defines “small business” to mean an independently owned and operated business of a specified size, that, among other things, has average gross receipts of $15,000,000 over the previous 3 years. Existing federal law defines “small business” to depend upon, among other things, the industry, gross receipts, and number of employees of the business.
This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would update the definition of “small business” under California law to coincide with the federal definition.

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 It is the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation that would update the definition of “small business” in subdivision (d) of Section 14837 of the Government Code to coincide with the federal definition found at Section 632 of Title 15 of the United States Code.
