CALA Presents new Prop 65 Regulations to the Glendora Chamber
Maryann Marino, Regional Director, Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse presented new Proposition 65 regulations to nearly 40 small business owners at the Glendora Chamber of Commerce monthly meeting. Proposition 65 is an initiative passed by voters in 1986 called the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act. The law requires posted warnings that chemicals may be present on a premises, or contained within a product, the State of California has deemed a carcinogen that could cause cancer or reproductive harm. New regulations, implemented August 30th, are more specific. They require manufacturers, vendors, and retailers to list the exact name of a chemical from a growing list of nearly 1,000 substances. Failure to do so could result in a fine of up to $2,500 per day, per violation.
