[GreenYes] Fwd: "Stewardship" in CIWMB Strategic Plan under attack
Apologies for Cross Postings

>The CIWMB Strategic Plan is currently being updated.  See 
>for a copy of the October draft of this document.  This document will be 
>the basis for allocating staff resources, budget development, contract 
>funds, and developing future legislative proposals.
>Some major manufacturing groups are objecting to terms such as "product 
>stewardship, extended product responsibility, environmentally preferable 
>products and manufacturer responsibility" included in the Draft 2001 
>Strategic Plan. This industry opposition is being led by Brian White at 
>the California Chamber of Commerce and Jeff Sickenger at the California 
>Manufacturers and Technology Association.  Together with other major 
>industry players, they call themselves the "Thursday Group."  A list of 
>The Thursday Group is below.
>Please contact Chair Linda Moulton Patterson and cc: all other CIWMB 
>Boardmembers to express support for these concepts being included in the 
>Strategic Plan. Please do this before the November 7, 2001 Agenda Briefing 
>meeting, or no later than the full Board meeting on November 13, 2001 in 
>Sacramento.  If you are able to attend one of these meetings and testify, 
>that would be even better!  If you are a business with adopted 
>sustainability policies, or are practicing sustainable business practices, 
>your comments would be particularly valuable, as examples of those who 
>embrace these principles.

>A list of the Boardmembers email addresses follows:
> (Linda Moulton Patterson, Chair)
> (Steve Jones)
> (Senator David Roberti)
> Paparian)
> (Dan Eaton)
> (Jose Medina)
>The Global Recycling Council (GRC) of CRRA will be circulating a draft 
>letter shortly for you to use as a model for such comments.
>Thanks for your help!
