Senator Moreno, bill sponsor, presented
Senate Bill 19-034. Under current law, local governments cannot require
or prohibit the use or sale of specific types of plastic materials or products,
or restrict or mandate containers, packaging, or labeling for any consumer
products. This bill creates an exception to allow local governments the
option to set standards for retail food establishments' ready-to-eat food
containers that may be discarded through recycling or composting.
Senator Moreno requested that the bill be postponed indefinitely.
