    Both bills were strongly opposed by a California Chamber of Commerce-led coalition of employer groups and local chambers of commerce.

    • Failing to clear the Assembly was AB 628 (Bonta; D-Oakland), which would have created an uncapped new leave of absence for employees and their family members. Several Democrats joined Republicans in opposing the bill, while other Democrats and several Republicans abstained.
