FPA Signs Coalition Letter Sent to California’s Senate Committee on Environmental Quality Regarding AB 2026 (Friedman)

The California Chamber of Commerce and the organizations listed respectfully oppose unless amended AB 2026 (Friedman) as amended on June 9, 2022, which is the most current version of the bill in print. During the May 26, 2022, Assembly Floor session, the Author committed to removing all bans in the bill if the Assembly voted to move this bill to the Senate. After the bill was narrowly voted out with 41 votes, our Coalition was disappointed to see that the bill was amended on June 9, 2022, to include outright bans on critically important packaging. We take the Author at her word and look forward to continue working in the Senate on a more implementable framework that avoids the problems outlined herein.
