Oil Filter Legislation Advances

The Senate Committee on Environment passed Assembly Bill 258, which would require the recycling of oil filters and oil absorbent materials, by a 5-0 vote on October 7, 2009. This legislation will help save resources and keep contaminants out of our ground water. The bill passed the full Assembly in June, and the final legislative step is full Senate approval before going to the Governor.
