    HOT ISSUES for the Week of June 24, 2019

    Environmental Regulation
    OPPOSE AB 161 (Ting; D-San Francisco): Paper Receipt Ban — Would mandate most businesses in California to offer customers electronic or paper receipts, or an option to opt out of any receipt at all, which could disrupt how retailers manage returns. California businesses would also be forced to replace all of their receipt paper with BPA/BPS-free paper and to waste more paper by printing coupons separate from the actual receipt. Senate Judiciary Committee.
