Please Take Action Today — As you have been reading, the industry sponsored and supported legislation, SB 254 (Hancock/Correa), is on course during the final few weeks of California’s legislative session.
The next vote is a critical one – the Assembly Floor. We need ALL California mattress manufacturers, vendors, sales teams, and employees to voice their support of SB 254 with their Assembly Member.
Please take a few moments from your day to submit a letter to your Assembly Member (instructions below) and make a call to the District and Legislative offices to voice your support.
We also ask for you to encourage everyone involved in your business to follow the ‘Take Action’ button above to submit a letter of support for SB 254. The body of the letter has been created, you may send it as it is or you may add a personal introduction and closure.
Thank you to those who have previously submitted support letters. Now that our audience is the entire Assembly we need to ask each and every one of you, plus your professional network, to take a few more minutes to go through the submission process again. The ‘Take Action’ page will ask for the zip codes and the letters will be assigned to the Assembly Members from that information.
Next step – calls to the Assembly Members’ offices. We are asking that you call both the District Office and the Capitol Office. You do not have to speak directly to the Assembly Member, you may also talk to the Chief of Staff or Legislative Director. You will need to identify yourself as a constituent and let them know you are in strong support of SB 254 and hope you can count on the Legislator’s ‘aye’ vote when it comes up on the Assembly Floor for a vote. Leave them your name and number should they wish to call you back.
If you are unsure of the appropriate Assembly Member office to connect with please call Shelly Sullivan at (916) 858-8686 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the name and telephone numbers.
Important things to remember about SB 254 is it creates a used mattress recycling program that will have a dedicated funding mechanism, reduce the impact of illegally dumped mattresses, harness existing infrastructure for transporting used mattresses to recyclers, create jobs, and minimize costs to both government and consumers.
Thank you again for your commitment to our efforts.
