Schwarzenegger signs anti-slavery bill

The outgoing Governor signed the unpopular legislation on Thursday (30Sep10) and now all California businesses must disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery, according to the Los Angeles Times newspaper.

He says, “This legislation will increase transparency, allow consumers to make better, more informed choices and motivate businesses to ensure humane practices throughout the supply chain.”

The new bill was opposed by officials at the California Chamber of Commerce and the California Grocers Association, who fear the new legislation would make California firms responsible for actions of those far outside the borders of the United States.
