California AB178 is Off Calendar

by Missy Ward in Affiliate Marketing   &  , , ,   1 Comment

A small sigh of relief was heard around Affiliateland when today's hearing in California regarding Assembly Bill 178 (“AB 178”) was canceled.

In a nutshell, AB 178 is now a two-year bill which signifies its death, for this year anyway.

Unfortunately, lawmakers can use a practice known as “GANDA” (Gut-and-Amend), during the final days of a legislative session in which the entire contents of another bill can be stripped out and replaced with the contents of AB 178.

It may take a few times to finally put this issue to bed, but in the meantime it looks like California's small business owners are temporarily safe.

Great work by the whole crew who banged on the doors of California's legislators to get them to understand the ramifications of #advertising tax.
