Plastics Industry Association Testifies on Proposed California Thermoformed Container Legislation

Shannon Crawford, the director of state government affairs at the Plastics Industry Association, Washington, testified before the California State Assembly Natural Resources Committee. In the remarks she prepared for delivery, Crawford writes that while the association’s members “strongly support the use of recycled content” and that “legislating minimum requirements may be beneficial if done appropriately,” the association had some concerns regarding the legislation as proposed.  “Unfortunately, our analysis indicates there will not be sufficient recycled content to meet the mandates of this legislation.”
