California Boasted 775,320 Export-Connected Jobs in 2014American exports one of the most integral components to the U.S. economy as a whole and that of each of the 50 states. The United States of Trade provides a comprehensive state-by-state analysis of how exports support domestic job creation. Released on Thursday, April 9 by U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman and Secretary of Commerce Peny Pritzker, the report also details the number businesses selling their products overseas. An associated interactive map breaks down the data for each state along with small and medium business success stories from each state. The California economy, with the largest gross domestic product in the United States, is robust thanks in large part to the significant amount of products California-based businesses send to the global marketplace.
Event Coincides with the League’s Legislative Action DayEach year in the Capitol scores of normally suit-clad legislators, staff and lobbyists, leave their formal attire at home and instead wear denim. April 29 is not casual Friday. Denim Day is a day during Sexual Assault Awareness Month when people all over the world wear jeans as a way to protest what some allege can lead to sexual assault. The League is hosting its annual Legislative Action Day the same day and city officials traveling to Sacramento are encouraged to wear denim in support of this global effort. The League’s officers, board of directors and staff will all be in jeans.
