Our legislative contributor sent this notice along:
———————————
05/12/2008

In SENATE. Read third time. Passed SENATE. Moves To ASSEMBLY. [end]
———————————–
Notes:
CALIFORNIA State Sen Abel Maldonado’s (R) amendment to SB1277 has passed the Senate and is now moving to the Assembly – it has a few more steps to go and then needs to be signed into law by the governor – which would not be before end of summer (if by then)

Current Language of SB1277 HERE:
http://www.legisweb.com/calm/model/Retrieve.asp?ref=urn:calm:2007:sb1277:doc

It’s worth a look – it is significantly different than the original language posted in Feb 2008.

Add’l Data/Info:
Sen Maldonado’s office has also requested that Calif State Atty General, Jerry Brown,
investigate synthetic turf SYSTEMS under Proposition 65 … specifically due to
claims/assessments/studies re: possible hazards and concerns of the public of use of specific job material components in artificial turf systems.

[KW Site Search: lead, heavy metals, pe, pp, pa, nylon fibers]

This week, Synthetic Turf Council (STC) representatives met with 7 other industry leaders in a round-table to discuss industry-wide points of interest with the CPSC and EPA.

we’ll keep you posted …
