Position and Status. 
CAW supports. SB 1020 was held in the Assembly Appropriations Commitee, but was later incorporated into AB 1390. Previously, the bill passed out of Asm. NR July 2 with a 6-2 vote, passed off the Sen floor May 6 with a 23-14 vote, passed out of Senate Approps. May 31 with a 10-6 vote, and passed out of Sen EQ April 16 with a 5-1 vote.

In 1989, California passed AB 939, or the CA Integrated Waste Management Act, which required each city and county, to not only develop a source reduction and recycling plan, but required cities and counties to reach a 50% diversion rate by January 1, 2000. This bill would require CIWMB to adopt programs to increase statewide diversion to 75% by 2020.
