California Senate shows no faith in "good faith" franchising bill

Franchise rights advocates suffered a setback when the California Senate failed to vote on Bill 610, which would have required that good faith be an official part of franchising agreements. The new franchise law was opposed by representatives and lobbyists representing more than 40 big franchisors such as BP, The UPS Store and Fatburger. One senator counted the number of individuals and franchisees who had contacted him in support of the bill at over 700.
