AB 199 (Eggman) - Sales Tax Exemption on Recycling Equipment

Summary: AB 199 would provide financial assistance in the form of sales tax exemption on equipment purchases to businesses that process or utilized recycled feedstock.

Position and Status: CAW is the sponsor of AB 199. AB 199 passed the legislature with bipartisan support and was signed by the Governor on October 11, 2015.

Description:  AB 199 is authored by Assemblymember Susan Eggman (D-Stockton). The bill would add recycled content manufacturing and processing to the successful Advanced Transportation and Alternative Sources Manufacturing Sales and Use Tax Exclusion Program. This will provide an important incentive to recycle more materials and reintroduce more recyclable materials into California’s manufacturing economy.
