California Holding Tank Bill Goes to Governor
The California bill, AB 1824, that would ban the use of many holding tank chemicals, is swiftly on its way to its final destination – the governor’s desk.
The California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (CalARVC) is urging California campgrounds to write Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger encouraging him to sign the bill into law.
AB 1824 has made its way almost unanimously through both Houses and their respective committees with only three nay votes and one abstention, CalARVC reported. The law is meant to protect campground owners and millions of campers from the assumed negative effects from products that contain bronopol, dowicil, formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, paraformadelhyde and paradichlorobenzene.
