Position and Status:

CAW Supports. AB 1021 was held in Senate Appropriations and is no longer active.


AB 1021 will 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.
