The State of California's Economic Recovery
8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. | Wednesday, September 23, 2020
Within weeks of the state-wide shelter-in-place order, Governor Gavin Newsom announced the formation of the state’s Task Force on Jobs and Business Recovery. The announcement came as cities and regions across California were beginning to grapple with the economic fallout of COVID-19. In the months since, the state has carefully weighed public health guidance and residents’ safety with the preservation of jobs and small businesses in its efforts to reopen the economy.
Join SPUR and Kate Gordon, Director of the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, for a conversation on the state’s economic development initiatives and the plans to restart California’s economy.
