14: ISB supports stem cell research, but is unable to provide a firm recommendation based on fiscal concerns.
19: No recommendation
22: No, but ISB recognizes that AB-5 needs additional modifications which should be handled by the State Legislature.
23: No recommendation, but ISB feels that dialysis clinic regulation should be addressed by the State Legislature.
24: No, but ISB supports strengthening privacy laws through other means.
25: ISB does not support cash bail, but also is hesitant to support the proposed risk assessment system proposed in SB10, which seems to make existing systemic inequities worse. However, cash bail is a system that cannot be corrected and so therefore must be removed. Thus we recommend a “Yes” vote to end cash bail and then advocating your state representatives to hold them accountable to change the risk assessment system to make it equitable.
