ISPA-supported California mattress recycling legislation, SB 254 (Hancock/Correa), was voted out of the Senate Appropriations Committee today. As you will recall, the California Senate Environmental Quality Committee approved SB 254 earlier this month and sent the bill to the Senate Appropriations Committee, which was the next step in the process. Following today’s vote, SB 254 is headed to the Senate Floor for a vote next week. After that vote, SB 254 will move to the Assembly.
We need your continued support in our efforts. If you are a manufacturer, retailer or industry vendor in California please take action today. At that website you can send a letter to your Senator asking that he or she SUPPORT SB 254 (Hancock-Correa). We would also like you to call your Representative’s District Office and the Capitol Office. Please email Shelly Sullivan, or call (916) 858-8686 and she will be happy to provide you with the call-in numbers.
Both tactics will not take much time out of your busy schedules, but the value they will provide will help ensure our legislation continues with support from both the Senate and Assembly and both parties.
Thank you for your time and commitment to our efforts to ensure SB 254 succeeds. As you know, it will establish a single program for recycling used mattresses that will be both economical and practical, reduce the impact of illegally dumped mattresses, harness existing infrastructure for transporting used mattresses to recyclers, and minimize costs to industry, government and consumers.
