TRSA members can participate in this Sacramento event to learn how two legislative initiatives facing the California General Assembly will impact their businesses and get advice on applying for a state grant to upgrade delivery trucks to low-emission standards.

There is no registration fee for this California Legislative Conference; attendees cover only their travel and hotel costs. There is no official event hotel; stay where you feel most comfortable. The meeting will be downtown at the Sutter Club.

The two initiatives are:

  • AB 2679 – Authored by Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach), it directs the California Department of Health to reform the outdated Title 22 regulation that requires a prescriptive method of laundering healthcare linens of 160 degrees at 24 minutes. The update should include more modern, effective and efficient methods of laundering.
  • AB 2379 (polyester bill) – Introduced by Assemblymember Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica), it requires any clothing composed of more than 50% synthetic material to have a label that states “sheds plastic microfibers when washed. Hand washing recommended to reduce shedding.”

In addition to reviewing these initiatives and speaking to legislators about them in visits arranged by TRSA to the state capitol, you’ll get an update on the “Last Mile Delivery” initiative of the California Air Resources Board and learn how companies can receive grant money from the California state government to defray the costs of updating delivery trucks to low emissions.

You’ll also visit the state capitol to meet with your local representative to encourage their support for the industry and the meeting concludes with a debrief lunch to discuss information gathered and next steps.
