The Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce Opposes AB 1074, because it is an unprecedented expansion of current law with the potential to further harm the already decimated lodging industry. Hotels are significant enterprises which require a number of specialized services provided by companies that tailor to tailor to their particular needs. Changing contractors is not a proposition hotels take lightly, as the change can be an expensive and time consuming proposition. However, when a contractor no longer meets a hotel’s needs, the hotel may need to seek alternative service providers to maintain their operational requirements (i.e., a guest booking service doesn’t accept a currency the hotel wishes to honor, so the hotel switches systems).
