Robert Shaffer GLENDALE -- A bill making its way through the California Legislature would establish a state trade office in Yerevan, the capitol of Armenia. Assemblyman Jack Scott (D-Montrose), who introduced the bill Jan. 31, said California must find ways to expand California's economy. Under the bill, the state would spend up to $149,000 per year to open the office. "California can leverage a relatively minor investment into increased jobs and business ventures for California entrepreneurs," Scott said in a statement.
