Bill Introduced to Reform 17200
Friday was the last day to introduce bills for the 2003-2004 legislative session. Not surprisingly, a new bill to amend section 17200 was introduced on that day. AB 2604 would define "unfair competition" as any act outlawed by a state or federal law or regulation, thereby repealing the "unfair" and "fraudulent" prongs; would limit private enforcement actions to persons who suffered actual harm; and would impose onerous new procedural prerequisites to suit. The bill was introduced by Assemblyman Bill Pacheco, a Republican from Southern California. If past history is any indication, the bill won't get far.
