The State of the State is an event in which exclusive insights are shared as California’s new fiscal year begins from the State Senator. Topics such as healthcare, education, tax credits and other initiatives on creating more jobs and programs to promote the economy are discussed. Guests are provided the opportunity to network with one another, enjoy a meal and gain additional knowledge from political leaders in the community.

This year, we welcomed Senator Ben Allen in his inaugural address at the Hollywood Chamber’s State of the State Luncheon on  July 30th at 11:30 AM at Paramount Pictures (5555 Melrose Avenue).

This keynote conversation was moderated by Craig Darian, Co-Chairman & CEO of Occidental Entertainment Group Holdings, Inc. and Tricor Entertainment, Inc.  Discussion topics with Senator Ben Allen included housing & development, CEQA reform, green initiatives, and the impact of Hollywood’s entertainment industry to the State of California.
