AB 525, California’s pending legislation that will amend the California Franchise Relations Act and restore a small semblance of balance to the franchisor/franchisee relationship, has now been sent to the floor of the Assembly for the first vote by the full body, a vote that may be called as early as this coming week.  The bill has been approved by both the Judiciary and Business & Professions committees.  We strongly urge any of our subscribers with California business units or other connections to the Golden State to write letters now in support of AB525.
