The verdict is in: Healthy kids in CA are worth more than $5 million from chemical industry lobbyists!By Christina Medina
Yesterday we wrote about the California BPA bill and all the attempts chemical lobbyists made to kill it. But after spending $5 million, they still couldn’t defeat it! Today, the California assembly voted to ban Bisphenol A (BPA) from infant food packaging, thereby discounting the chemical and pharmaceutical industry scare tactics! Whoohoo!
It was quite the fight, coming up against the chemical and pharmacutical industry scare tactics. But with help from the San Francisco Chronicle, the California Report and most significantly YOU, CHANGE and our allies have been able to take this little-bill-that-could off the floor of both houses of the legislature and soon, onto the governor’s desk.Tags: Bisphenol-A, BPA, California BPA bill, California Report, CHANGE, chemical industy scare tactics, chemical lobbyists, SF Chronicle
