Though Californians can't yet start singing "Ding-dong, the witch is dead!", they can start crossing their fingers for a enviro-happy ending. AB 1998, the state's bag ban bill, passed the Assembly yesterday and now has just two remaining hurdles: 1) the State Senate and 2) Der Governator.
Experts say step two will be a breeze, and with grocers backing the bill, step one...well, I don't wanna jynx the forward momentum - and THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP & SUPPORT. We shall keep you posted if we are able to fashion a new Action Alert for local state senators - those are easy and effective.
Time schedules can vary for bills passing through the circuitous CA state legislature, but our teams are monitoring progress closely, so stay tuned for more good news...!
