As you know from our reports over the past few months, a mild version of fair franchising legislation, SB.610 will be heard by the California legislature’s Committee on Business, Professions and Consumer Protection this coming Tuesday, August 13.  A great effort has been undertaken by franchisees and their supporters in the California legislature and we wish them a favorable vote in the Committee on Tuesday!  We reported last week on the filing of a Fair Franchising initiative, HB 1620 in the Pennsylvania General Assembly.  We’ve since learned the sponsor, Democratic Rep. Peter Dailey, is a former Quiznos franchisee, who would certainly understand the inherent inequities in franchise agreements.
