Agenda Item # Agenda Topic
11-8-3
Public Meeting to Update the Board on Mandatory Commercial Waste Recycling
ARB staff, in coordination with CalRecycle staff, will present to the Board an informational update on Assembly Bill (AB) 341, which was recently signed by the Governor.  Because AB 341 is consistent with the requirements of a proposed regulation that was originally scheduled to be considered by the Board at this meeting (the Proposed Regulation to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions by Requiring Mandatory Commercial Waste Recycling), staff believes the proposed regulation is no longer needed and will not be presenting it to the Board for consideration.  Staff from both agencies will instead present this informational update.
