The report entitled Level the Playing Field: Put California's Underground Economy Out of Business, makes 15 recommendations to give competitive advantage to compliant businesses:

  • Accountability. The Governor should designate a limited-term leader with authority to coordinate state efforts and eliminate barriers preventing a successful fight. 
  • Enforcement. The Commission calls for improved enforcement efforts to reduce the scale of the underground economy which has grown and thrived.
  • Education. The state should develop new consumer education and outreach programs to reduce demand for underground economy goods and services. It also should better educate public officials on the harm caused by the underground economy and their role in curtailing it.
