PLASTICS Responds to California Senate Bill 54 and Assembly Bill 1080

September 1, 2020

The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) President & CEO Tony Radoszewski issued the following statement after California Senate Bill 54 and Assembly Bill 1080 failed to pass yesterday:       

“We are certainly appreciative of all the legislators who recognized that Senate Bill 54 and Assembly Bill 1080 were flawed and would impose significant burdens on businesses and their customers. We now have a chance to hit the reset button and work with all interested stakeholders to craft legislation that will really address the issue of sustainability. The plastics industry stands ready to work with legislators to get something done in the coming months so by next year, there is a workable bill in front of lawmakers in California.”
