Stakeholder meeting on California's Pharmaceuticals Extended Producer Responsibility Bill (SB727) set for November 13

From the Product Stewardship Institute Newsletter:

A second stakeholder meeting on California's pharmaceutical stewardship bill, SB 727, has been scheduled for next month, moving the bill one step closer to a vote by the Senate Environmental Quality Committee. The bill, introduced by Senator Hanna-Beth Jackson, mirrors Alameda County's pharmaceutical ordinance, the first of its kind in the nation to require drug manufactures to develop, fund, and implement safe and secure medicine collection programs throughout the state. While SB 727 was introduced last year, it never made it to a vote, as the Committee Chair saw a need for greater stakeholder input.

What: SB 727 Stakeholder Meeting
When: Wednesday, November 13th, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., PST
Where: Room 112, Capitol Building, Sacramento
