SACRAMENTO, CA – Assembly Bill 1884, a measure authored by Majority Leader Ian Calderon (D-Whittier) which calls upon dine-in, full service restaurants to have a straws-upon-request policy, was signed into law today by Governor Brown.

“I am thankful to Governor Brown for signing AB 1884,” stated Majority Leader Calderon. “By removing the default behavior of providing straws with every drink, consumers have an opportunity to make a deliberate, small change that will minimize the harmful impacts of single use plastic straws in the environment. It’s a small but significant step forward and will hopefully set the precedent for the rest of the nation to adopt similar policies that will ensure less plastic ends up harming the environment.”
