This memo, co-authored by UCLA's Williams Project on Sexual Orientation Law and the Institute for Gay and Lesbian Strategic Studies (IGLSS), is a response to your request for an estimate of the impact of AB 205 on the ability of California businesses to collect debt at risk of default. We estimate that AB 205 will reduce California businesses' losses from uncollected debt. AB 205 will provide creditors with enhanced ability to collect between $13 and $78 million dollars of at-risk debt held by registered domestic partners in California.
