Green America’s Skip the Slip campaign has inspired a proposed Skip the Slip law in California that is making its way through the legislature! Assemblymember Phil Ting (D- San Francisco) is sponsoring the legislation that gives customers the option of getting a non-toxic paper receipt, getting an e-receipt, or getting no receipt at all at most businesses in the state.
The bill has passed the Assembly and the Senate Judiciary and Environmental Quality Committees, and next it heads to the Appropriations Committee. We’re working with allies in California to make sure it gets to the Senate floor and then becomes law.
Assemblymember Ting was inspired by our campaign Skip the Slip and originally introduced a bill in 2019. After listening to the input of businesses and consumers, the bill is back. Thanks to all of you who have taken action on this campaign and look for more updates and action alerts soon.
