CFC Supports AB 2654 (Hill) – Solicitations

Status: On 5/6 AB 2654 was referred to the Committee on Business, Professions and Economic Development in the State Senate.


AB 2654 would require the disclosure of non-governmental status and affiliation at the top of the first page of the mailing.  The requirement would prevent solicitors from hiding this critical information in the ‘fine print’, which is often the practice of solicitors today.  Solicitors currently use threats of penalties, fines, and suspension of business to deceive consumers to make payments to the organization.  They have demanded up to ten times the amount of the actual government agency fine.  AB 2654 would empower consumers and prevent victimization.

Assembly Floor – Yes: 43, No: 24, Absent: 13

Assembly Business and Professions Committee – Yes: 7, No: 2, Absent: 2
