Yesterday, California Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed SB 1102, the H-2A bill authored by Senator Bill Monning. Western Growers thanks all of our members who responded to our Action Alerts and reached out to their legislators and Governor Newsom requesting that the bill be vetoed. Your collective outreach made a significant impact on the outcome of this bill.

Increasingly, the marketplace is demanding an accounting of sustainability practices, but how are you measuring and communicating stewardship in your operations?

Governor Gavin Newsom has issued an executive order requiring that, by 2035, all new cars and passenger trucks sold in California must be zero-emission vehicles.
