2020 – Assembly Bill 2612 (Maienschein, Brian), Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund: Recycling Appropriation (Dead)
Would have continuously appropriated $200 million from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery to support in-state markets for solid and organic waste recycling beginning in fiscal year 2020-21. $100 million would have gone towards in-state waste recycling projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help achieve the State's goal that 75 percent of solid waste is source reduced, recycled, and composted. The remaining $100 million would have gone towards in-state recycling projects to meet requirements established by SB 1383 (Lara, Chapter 395, Statutes of 2016) to reduce landfill disposal of organic waste 75 percent by 2025. Was not heard in the Assembly Natural Resources Committee.
