WE NEED YOUR HELP! SB 812, a bill that the The People’s Senate on DTSC—which includes CBE members–helped draft, and that Senator Kevin de León has championed, is on the Governor’s desk. SB 812 will help to clean up the Dept. of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and make the agency more accountable to communities. We need you to urge the Governor to sign this bill! Please mail or fax a letter TODAY to the Governor asking him to sign it.

**More about SB 812** SB 812 is an important step toward ensuring that California’s hazardous laws actually do what they were intended to do—protect Californians from harmful pollution. SB 812 enacts permitting requirements, and transparency and accountability measures desperately needed for DTSC to fulfill its mandate to protect Californians from toxic exposures. Additionally, it includes requirements to ensure that polluters, not tax payers, will be on the hook for cleaning up polluted sites.
