Al Muratsuchi wrote laws that helped bring thousands of good aerospace and other jobs in California. In the Assembly he will continue the work of fighting for jobs, job training, and the kind of economic investments that create good paying jobs in the South Bay. That’s why he was named Legislator of the Year by the California Solar Energy Industries Association and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, and that’s why he’s supported by the California Small Business Association.
I’ve helped restore billions in funding for public schools and higher education that had been cut during the recession.

Al Muratsuchi has called for greater oversight of the Torrance Refining Company and has created a detailed, six-point refinery safety plan to help keep families in Torrance safe. This plan includes a ban of modified hydrofluoric acid, real-time air quality monitors, a community disaster preparedness plan and an effective alarm system that can warn residents of any emissions.

Making the Torrance Refinery Safer
Last year, I successfully worked to make the Torrance Refinery safer for neighbors and workers. I am proud to have:
I’ve made it a top priority to get disabled and homeless veterans the services they need.
As a prosecutor and former Deputy Attorney General, I’m committed to the safety of our neighborhoods.
I voted against letting criminals out of prison early. I have voted to crack down on criminals who use guns and on sex traffickers. Recently, I opposed further changes to public safety laws which would have reduced sentences for violent offenders.

I’ve been one of the most effective legislators in California when it comes to creating new jobs.
My work to cut red tape, and support the solar and aerospace industries, have created thousands of local jobs.
This year, I authored legislation to create a Commission on Aerospace which would advise the Governor and Legislature on issues of importance to the business community – focusing on business climate, workforce development, and new technologies.
Additionally, I wrote a bill that would create a new category of companies (microbusiness) which have a total annual income of $150,000 or less and would lower the annual minimum franchise tax for these companies from $700 a year to $100. This reduction will give real fiscal relief to owners of small businesses.
I also secured funding in this year’s budget to help small business owners “green” their businesses through the California Green Business Network.
