The bill already passed the Assembly, and if the Senate approves the bill, the Govenor is expected to sign it.  Please get involved and contact a Senator today! 

Here is a statement from the Govenor:

“I commend the Assembly for passing AB 1998, which would make California the first state in the nation to ban plastic bags. This bill will be a great victory for our environment and I applaud Assemblywoman Brownley for working on this effort.”
