Rollo Tomassi, the owner of one of the largest pizza parlors in the country, is trying to get back to business after losing millions in his failed bid to become a franchisee in the state.
But that is unlikely to happen soon as California Gov.
Gavin Newsom has proposed rolling back many of the changes that the company proposed to make under his administration.
Rollo Tomassis plans to open a second restaurant in Southern California after the state’s Legislature passed a law requiring restaurants to provide health care coverage.
It will likely be in a strip mall or a smaller restaurant, with no parking, a sign outside states Department of Motor Vehicles office read.
But it will likely have to use its existing franchise business to cover all of its employees, which is unlikely in a state with a $1.3 billion payroll deficit and high costs of living, said Tomassi’s chief operating officer, Joe DiCicco.
He said he expects to reopen in 2019.
Tomassi said the new restaurant will have fewer employees and will have less seating and be smaller in size.
The state of California lost more than $2.3 million in 2017, with a payroll deficit of $1 billion, the largest of any state in the nation, according to state data.
The company said it expects to have about 100 employees in 2019 and about 1,000 employees in 2020, the company said.
The state of Washington has taken steps to reduce the statewide payroll deficit by eliminating many of its benefits, including the state retirement system, according the U.S. Department of Labor.
The agency said in a recent report that it was able to cut the state deficit in half in five years because of state policy changes and the repeal of many of Washington’s other benefit programs, such as the state health insurance program.
It said it expected to be able to maintain the same level of payroll tax revenue and to pay for other government services.
“The rollback plan will take a huge bite out of our businesses, our workers, and we don’t know how long that will last,” said Jeff Osterholm, Washington’s state secretary of state, referring to the company’s plans to close the new location.
In a separate announcement, the state of New York is rolling back its $3 billion in spending on social security, health insurance and unemployment insurance to $2 billion from $6 billion in 2019 to help reduce the deficit.
The budget is to be released Tuesday, and the changes are likely to be rolled back as well.
New York will also close its state pension fund and stop paying for retiree health benefits for state workers, which are funded through payroll taxes, according.
New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo and other state leaders have made it clear that they intend to keep cutting taxes and cutting services to try to balance the budget, but that will not be easy in a deep recession that is hurting their states economies.
On Tuesday, Cuomo said he was going to call a special session to try and avert a $2 trillion budget shortfall by September.
The special session will take place at noon on Tuesday and will be open to the public, and Cuomo said the state would be unable to pay its bills for the rest of the year.
He also said that if the special session fails to pass, he will seek a legislative fix for the budget shortfall in a legislative session that starts next week.
Cuomo’s plan would allow the state to pay all of the bills that were due in July, the next month, and allow it to keep paying the pensions and other benefits that are owed in September.
That would cut about $2,500 for each of the estimated 13 million New York workers, according, according with the state Department of Financial Services.
New Yorkers pay about $1,600 more in payroll taxes each year than residents of other states, and New Yorkers also receive a smaller tax credit for paying their taxes, the department said.
The New York Legislature passed the bill without a single Republican vote in the House and Senate, which would have been considered a victory for the governor.
But a group of Democratic lawmakers including Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, who has been the face of the state Democrats’ opposition to the rollback, said the budget plan did not go far enough.
“While this plan is a step in the right direction, we need a much broader, bipartisan proposal that protects workers, families, businesses, and our state,” she said in an emailed statement.
“New York’s proposal falls short of that.”
