[GreenYes] Fwd: Legislative Support Letters to Governor Needed now - AB48, AB548, SB1021

Apologies for Cross-Postings

Please take 5 minutes to send a letter to Governor Schwarzenegger in support of multifamily recycling legislation. If you've already sent your letters, thank you. We particularly need letters of support for AB 548.

Sample individual and organizational letters for AB 548 (the CAW-sponsored multifamily recycling bill) are on our website.

Individual and organizational letters are also posted for SB 1021, which would help offset some of the costs of providing bottle and can recycling at multifamily dwellings.
Please fax these letters to the Governor (and send us a copy), or e-mail them to us and we will hand-deliver the letters.

Thanks for your help,

Mark Murray
Executive Director

...We are looking to get support letters to the Governor for a few bills. All 3 of these are awaiting the governor's signature, but AB 48 and AB 548 face a particularly uphill battle.
You previously wrote a letter in support of AB 548 (the CAW-sponsored multifamily recycling bill) and we would appreciate it if you could just resend that to the Governor. This bill was one of the first ones to be enrolled, so it will probably be acted on very soon.
We would also appreciate a support letters for AB 48 (by Assemblymember Saldana), which requires manufacturers to phase out the use of non-essential toxic materials in consumer electronics effective January, 2010. This measure builds on existing California law covering toxic materials in TV's and computer monitors, and tracks a similar measure already adopted in Europe.
Sample letters and more information:
We are also trying to get support letters for SB 1021 (by Senator Padilla) which would authorize the Department of Conservation to expend up to $15 million in surplus redemption funds to help offset the cost of providing beverage container recycling services at multifamily dwellings. This bill does not face as much of an uphill battle as the other two, so the other two have slightly more priority.
Sample letters and more information:
The letters should be faxed and snail-mailed to the Governor and CCed to us and the authors. Please feel free to give me a call if you need any more information.
Thanks Gary.
