78.  Jennifer Barrera

The California Chamber of Commerce’s senior vice president for policy is Jennifer Barrera, who effectively represents the Chamber on legal reform issues. “Reform” is a word carrying an ambiguous meaning, depending on your perspective. In any event, Barrera advises businesses on complying with changes in employment laws, and she advises the Chamber on labor, jobs and taxation — a wide portfolio.
