(Sacramento, CA)– The following statement can be attributed to the California Retailers Association President and CEO Rachel Michelin following Governor Gavin Newsom’s legislative proposals for cracking down on property crimes.

“Cal Retailers applauds the Governor for continuing to lead on the issue of Organized Retail Crime and working collaboratively with retailers on legislative proposals that provide real, tangible solutions to serial theft and Organized Retail Crime in California and prioritizing the safety of our consumers, employees, jobs and economy. Newsom’s legislative package addressing ORC and property crimes announced today is yet another huge step in the right direction on tackling this problem. I and the members of the California Retailers Association appreciate that the Governor and his team listened to our concerns related to ORC/Retail theft and we look forward to continuing to work with the Administration, the Speaker of the Assembly, President pro Tem and members of the legislature on important policies that protect California’s retail employees, our customers and the neighborhoods in which retailers operate in.”
