State PIRG staff from around the country joined over 120 consumer advocates at the third annual Consumer Lobby Day today. Meetings with members of Congress and their staffs focused on protecting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's structure and funding while also opposing its current leadership's attack on a payday lending regulation drafted by its past director and his team.
CALPIRG recently launched our Work for Wellbeing campaign to redefine work and provide support for the different ways Californians contribute to their communities that may not be captured by GDP or a bottom line. Today Gov. Newsom announced that his revised May budget will include a $1,000 CalEITC expansion for qualifying families with young children under six, doubling his original proposal back in January.
