AB 2051 (Nora Campos, D-San Jose) has been stripped of its existing language regarding hexavalent chromium and amended to deal with an unrelated subject.

The measure, opposed by CMTA, previously specified an intention to impose a new statutory deadline for the Department of Public Health to adopt a maximum concentration limit (MCL) for hexavalent chromium in drinking water.

The author’s previous bill on this subject, AB 403, remains “officially” active. It came off the inactive file last month where it had been sitting since September. It is unclear whether or not it will be pursued this year.  This measure would limit the review of a proposed MCL for hexavalent chromium by the Department of Finance to 90 days.
