Committee History

Created by House Resolution 1 on December 4, 2000, the Assembly Committee on Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy replaced the Assembly International Trade and Development Committee. The Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy Committee assumed its predecessor's responsibility of reviewing legislation related to a wide range of issues, including: business advocacy of import/export trade, California-Mexico relations, California overseas trade offices, development of international high tech markets, economic impact reports, effect of balance of trade issues on California, Enterprise Zones, expansion of overseas markets, foreign investments by and in California, impacts of federal budget on international trade, international capital and capital formation, interstate commerce, seaports and physical infrastructure, sister state and friendship agreements with other nations, state and local economic development, and tourism. In addition, the Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy Committee was assigned all legislation relating to business advocacy within California and the United States, the Department of Information Technology, development and expansion of new technologies (except energy), economic disaster relief, impacts of federal budget on high tech projects, information technology, industrial innovation and research, small business development and operations, and year 2000 compliance (Assembly Journal, February 6, 1997, pg. 252; Assembly Journal, January 31, 2001, pg. 233).
The scope of the committee has remained relatively unchanged since its creation, with a few exceptions: in 2003, the topics of tourism and year 2000 compliance were removed from the committee's purview, and in 2005 the committee was assigned the task of reviewing bills concerning women and minority business enterprises (Assembly Journal, January 13, 2003, pg. 160; Assembly Journal, January 3, 2005, pg. 91).
Since the committee's inception, its number of committee members has changed almost every legislative session, ranging from six to twelve members. The chairs of the committee were as follows:
Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy Committee, 2001-2014
Reyes, Sarah (Dem.), 2001-2002
Ridley-Thomas, Mark (Dem.), 2003-2004
Arambula, Juan (Dem.), 2005-2008
Perez, V. Manuel (Dem.), 2009-2012
Medina, Jose (Dem.), 2013-2014

Scope and Content

The Assembly Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy Committee records consist of 15 cubic feet of textual records and are organized into four record series: Bill Files, covering legislative sessions from 2001-2014; Hearing Files and Hearing Reports, with the Hearing Files ranging from 2001-2014 and the Hearing Reports dating from 2001-2008; Correspondence Files from 2000-2008; and an End of the Year Report from 2013.
The Bill Files document the legislation directed to the committee. The files include committee analysis, letters from interested parties, and the comments of affected agencies. These files show the close involvement of the committee in issues such as: information technology and the internet; Enterprise Zones across the state, including Clean Air Enterprise Zones (SB1230, 2005-2006); and small businesses, microenterprises, minority businesses, and businesses owned by women and disabled veterans, especially in relation to the awarding of state contracts (AB150 and SB67, 2011-2012).
The committee conducted hearings to review the legislation directed its way, as well as to discuss a variety of issues relevant to the committee's defined purview. Such issues include the role of public pension funds in the California Economy (2011), the role of the State Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank in California's economy recovery (2011), and the effects of trade and foreign investment on the regional economy of the Inland Empire in Southern California (2013). The Hearing Files and Hearing Reports series documents the proceedings of these hearings, including their agendas, committee notes and related information.
The committee's records also include a series of Correspondence to and from the committee chair, as well as an End of the Year Report generated by the committee for the year 2013.
