Ron Cedillos has long been recognized as a leader of a number of important public policy issues for the past twenty years. The following are just a few of the more publicized statewide and national programs he has shepherded on behalf of California.


California Council on Competitiveness

With the state’s economy quickly deteriorating during the last major recession, the newly elected governor called upon Ron Cedillos to join Peter Ueberroth and a handful of other business and labor leaders to develop an emergency economic revitalization plan for California. The resulting California Council on Competitiveness quickly brought together Cedillos and other top business and labor leaders under a mandate to analyze the prime components of the state’s diverse economy -- and to formulate a detailed plan which would provide California with a sound and effective approach to the challenges of an ongoing recession and a quickly changing global economy.

With just four months in which to work, and a myriad of often conflicting interests demanding input in the process, Cedillos and the other members of the Council were able to present the Governor and State with a landmark appraisal of the economic situation and a detailed blueprint for dramatic changes to the state’s economic platform. The blueprint included needed capital and economic incentives, regulatory streamlining, legal system reform and support for critical industries. The report's innovative initiatives helped make possible what the Governor later called the “California comeback,” and he characterized the report itself as the cornerstone for “the most productive session of the legislature in more than two decades.”

Ron Cedillos is proud not only of his service on the Council -- but more importantly of the many positive effects the Council's work has had in streamlining regulatory disincentives to growth while removing barriers to job creation for California.
