Heard From the Hill
There are no great victories in life without adversity. Just a few weeks ago, it looked all but certain that second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) were going to be banned in California, AB 1788 was going to become law with Governor Gavin Newsom’s signature, and after four years of successfully fighting off a ban our industry was destined to lose one of the most essential tools for managing rodents—and then something changed. The relentless advocacy of our industry achieved the impossible on Thursday, August 22, 2019. Yesterday, AB 1788 was pulled from the Senate Appropriations Committee, (the last committee before it would head to the Senate floor and the Governor’s desk), effectively killed for this year, and placed into the suspense file to be taken-up in 2020.
