SB 1154 (Liz Figueroa, D-Fremont) regulates manufacturers' and retailers' rebates to consumers. The bill weakens proof of purchase standards, mandates timelines for consumers submitting their rebate requests and short timelines for manufacturers fulfilling those requests, limits companies linking rebate offers with service or other contracts, requires rebate forms on site if they are not directly included with a product, and makes restrictions that could cause conflicts for nationwide company rebate offers.

Some CMTA members believe it would reduce the number of rebates offered by companies to California consumers.
