HELP US TELL YOUR STORY – FLUSHABLE WIPES BILL HEARING NEXT WEEK
AB 1672 (Bloom), CASA’s sponsored bill on flushable and non-flushable product labeling, will be heard on Tuesday, April 9 th  in the Assembly Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials Committee. After the first hearing it will be then be heard on April 23 rd  in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.   We are urging members to send letters of support to  both of  these committees as soon as possible . This is your opportunity to tell your legislators about problems you have experienced with wet wipes at your agency, and why you support AB 1672. 

It is extremely important for legislators to hear this message from their local districts. We encourage you to also send copies of your agencies’ outreach materials on wipes (if you have them), and to share pictures and stories about your agency’s experience with wipes problems in your letters as well.  We are also encouraging agencies to get active on this issue on social media. Make sure to tag @CASA_CleanWater on Twitter and use #WipesClogPipes in your posts!
 
A template letter for agencies to customize is now available on our website. CASA’s support letter and other communications tools are also available online at  www.casaweb.org/wipes .  
 
Support letters are due to the committees this week . Please take the time to help us advocate on this important bill!
