The Federal Reserve will likely raise interest rates in June if economic data points to stronger second-quarter growth as well as firming inflation and employment, according to minutes from the U.S. central bank’s April policy meeting released on Wednesday. That view, expressed by most Fed policymakers at the last policy meeting, suggests the central bank is much closer to lifting rates again than Wall Street expects. Prices for futures contracts on the Fed’s benchmark overnight lending rate on Wednesday implied that investors only saw a 19 percent chance of a rate increase next month. But members of the Fed’s policy-setting committee said recent economic data made them more confident inflation was rising toward their 2 percent target and that they were less concerned about a global economic slowdown, according to the minutes from the April 26-27 meeting. To finish reading, click here.
Senator Richard D. Roth’s (D-Riverside) bipartisan measure to protect California’s small businesses and the disabled community has been approved by Governor Jerry Brown.  With the Governor’s signature on May 10th, 2016, this new law has already taken effect.  SB 269 enjoyed widespread bipartisan support and did not receive a single “no” vote throughout the legislative process.  It is a narrowly crafted provision to provide businesses with much needed disability access education, resources and training, and allows small businesses that have been proactive in identifying access issues a reasonable amount of time to fix any problems identified before a lawsuit arises. The bill seeks to incentivize businesses to proactively take steps to become accessible by providing them with 120 days from receipt of a Certified Access Specialist (CASp) report to resolve any violations identified without being subject to statutory penalties or litigation costs.
