Governor Schwarzenegger Vetoes SB 1313 (Corbett)


Bill Would Have Banned Certain Perfluorinated Compounds - Posted 9/30/08
 

 

 

Sacramento - Governor Schwarzenegger last night veto SB 1313 (Corbett), a bill to ban certain perfluorinated compounds.  CICC strongly urged the Governor to veto the measure contending the actions mandated by the legislation were not justified on the basis of the underlying science.    

 

SB 1313 is very type of legislation, the Governor's Green Chemistry Initiative is designed to avoid.  AB 1879 and SB 508, the "Green Chemistry" bills, provide statutory authority for DTSC to establish a science based framework for scientifically evaluating chemicals and chemical alternatives.  CICC has been a strong supporter of the Green Chemistry Initiative and of AB 1879 (Feuer) and SB 509 (Simitian) the two bills signed into law earlier in the day which provide statutory authorities to the California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) to implement the Governor's Initiative.

 

CICC is please by the Governor's action in vetoing SB 1313.  Read Governor's Veto Message
