Summary: In an effort to stop plastic pollution and reduce the overwhelming amount of single-use plastic Californian's consume on a daily basis, Assembly Bill 1884 would require sit-down restaurants in California to forgo the automatic distribution of straws in every drink, and instead only provide a straw when it is requested by the customer. 

Position & Status: CAW supports the bill.

  • Introduced January 17, 2018
  • Amended February 5, 2018 to remove penalty fines
  • Next Step: Assembly Natural Resources Hearing. Date TBA.
