California lawmakers rejected a measure yesterday that would have created the nation’s strictest statewide regulations on single-use plastics. If passed, companion bills SB 54 (Allen) and AB 1080 (Gonzalez) would have phased out single-use plastics – including items such as plastic bags, film packaging and produce bags – which would have created extraordinary challenges for the agriculture industry.

After AB 1080 passed the Senate on Sunday, SB 54 fell four votes shy of passing the Assembly Monday night.
