California Secretary of State – Business Filing Backlog and Business Information Modernization

December 10th, 2010 · No Comments · California filings, California nonprofit law

The following e-mail was sent by California Secretary of State to attorneys on December 2, 2010 concerning the business filing backlog:

In October, businesses and organizations throughout California were kind enough to support my efforts to speed up the business filing process at the Secretary of State’s office.  My Business Information Modernization (BIM) Proposal received overwhelming bipartisan support in the State Legislature, and was included in the 2010-11 state budget.

I am pleased to report that less than two months after the state budget was signed, substantial progress on reducing the filing backlog has already been made.   Attached is an update with more detailed information about plans for the future, and how the BIM Proposal has already exceeded the forecasted amount of funds generated for the state’s General Fund while helping California businesses.

Thank you for your continued support.  If you have any questions, please contact my office at (916) 653-7244.


Debra Bowen

Secretary of State
