Hi All:

Sorry I didn't include this information in the posting about Hewlett
Packard and a pending tonar cartridge Bill in the California

Here is the Bill number and when it might be heard. And thanks Rick for
the update on AB1497. Most importantly drop a line to your legislation
support the purchase of reusable and refillable tonar cartridges. to
find your legislator look at www.sen.ca.gov or www.assembly.ca.gov

AB 1497 (Oller) was the bill that originally banned single use
cartridges in California. It ran into strong opposition from the
committee chair and other members and was amended down to ban on the
sale of single use cartridges to the State of California. The penalty
for violation is that you (or any of your subsidiaries or parent
companies) can't sell to the State.

You can check out the bill at www.leginfo.ca.gov.

The bill will be heard on the Assembly Floor sometime before june 4th.

AB 75 (Strom-Martin) deals with state agency recycling.
