(a) It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this chapter to promote the economic development of small businesses through the California Small Business Finance Center by making available capital, general management assistance, and other resources, including financial services, personnel, and business education to small business entrepreneurs, including women, veteran, and minority-owned businesses, for the purpose of promoting the health, safety, and social welfare of the citizens of California, to eliminate unemployment of the economically disadvantaged of the state, and to stimulate economic development and entrepreneurship.

(b) It is the further intent of the Legislature to provide a flexible means to mobilize and commit all available and potential resources in the various regions of the state to fulfill these objectives, including federal, state, and local public resources, and private debt and equity investment.

(c) It is the further intent of the Legislature that corporations operating pursuant to this law shall, to the maximum extent feasible, coordinate with other job and business development efforts within their region directed toward implementing the purpose of this chapter.

(d) It is the further intent of the Legislature to provide expanded resources allowing participation by small and emerging contractors in state public works contracts. Increased access to surety bonding resources will assist in supporting participation by those firms in public works contracts, and by stimulating increased participation by small firms, the state will benefit from increased competition and lower bid costs.

(Amended by Stats. 2014, Ch. 71, Sec. 23. Effective January 1, 2015.)
