AB 391 defended

By From page A5 | July 05, 2013

EDITOR: The California Pawnbrokers Association (CAPA) sponsored AB 391 (Pan) in 2012, the bill that was the subject of your editorial on June 12. Therefore, we feel justified to take great exception to points of law you incorrectly ascribe to AB 391. You indicate that AB 391 was the product of the “esteemed Democratic majority”. In fact the bill was passed unanimously by all members of the California Legislature that were present and voting. The bill had a record 82 co-authors, proportionally split between Democrats and Republicans. The bill was overwhelmingly supported by law enforcement, National Federation of Independent Business, and a host of statewide and local business groups.
