SACRAMENTO – As part of Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez’s efforts to create jobs and help homeowners in California, the Assembly today passed legislation to provide $10,000 tax credits to buyers of new and pre-owned homes and to provide a sales tax exemption on the equipment manufacturers buy as they expand green business in California.
“Today, the Legislature approved two important job creation measures that put Californians back to work,” said Speaker Pérez. “One bill will help put construction workers back to work by providing tax incentives to first-time homebuyers, spurring the construction of new homes and the sale of existing housing stocks while the other will spur the development of the green economy by exempting the manufacturing of green technology products from sales tax. These measures will help get Californians working again, but they only represent a down payment of the kinds of job-creation policies the Legislature needs to enact to get California out of this recession.
