Ilianna Salas started this petition to State Senator Scott D. Wiener and

Small businesses have been severely affected by COVID-19. Small, family-owned businesses support our communities, keep us housed and fed, and provide jobs for many Californians. CA State Bill SB-939 was introduced to the senate to provide protections for small business commercial tenants in California so that they could renegotiate leases to make up for the financial losses caused by COVID-19. The bill only provides protections for eating or drinking establishments,  entertainment, and performance venues but does not provide protections for all other small businesses in California - this needs to change.

We must protect all small businesses across the board, we cannot allow them to go into debt because of this disaster. Without protections from landlords, jobs will be lost and communities ruined. 

Please join me in urging CA State Senators Wiener, Gonazlez, Bonta, Chiu, Ting, and Kalra to amend CA State Bill SB-939 to include protections for all small businesses before it reaches the CA State Assembly for final vote.
