“Nearly two years after it was signed by Governor Brown, California’s ban on Bisphenol-A (BPA) in baby bottles and sippy cups took effect this month. I was proud to be the principal co-author of AB 1319, which protects infants and toddlers from this harmful, hormone-disrupting chemical.”
“Prior to passage of this bill, I authored another bill that would have banned BPA in baby food and infant formula, in addition to bottles and cups. It was defeated after a fierce lobbying battle. As we learn more about the devastating effects of this toxic chemical, our effort to protect consumers of all ages continues.”
Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a man-made carbon-based synthetic compound used to make certain plastics and resins.
Pavley represents California’s 27th Senate District, which includes about half of the Santa Clarita Valley.
