SACRAMENTO -- The state Assembly is expected to vote swiftly Monday to add $2 million to the secretary of state's budget to speed up the processing of business paperwork. The office relies on a system of paper and not computerized filings for corporate, partnership and other business records that an entrepreneur must submit before hiring workers, opening doors or selling products. The $2-million appropriation, which must be approved also by the state Senate, would allow Secretary of State Debra Bowen to increase the pace of her operations for the rest of the current fiscal year, which ends June 30. The goal is get all documents processed within five days of being received in Sacramento.
