Members will recall that we’ve reported regularly on efforts to win passage of Fair Franchising legislation in Maine, Massachusetts and California over the past few weeks. (California’s next action is a hearing on August 13 before the Committee on Business and Consumer Protection.)  Well, while our opponents continue the chorus that legislation is not necessary, Australia has completely revamped their franchising code in such extreme fashion, they now require Good Faith and a host of other positive changes!!  Such audacity, mate!!!    The Government’s response to the review is available here.
