California Bans Harmful Rodenticides

from Golden Gate Audubon

Thanks to you and your phone calls, emails, and letters, Governor Newsom signed AB 1788 on September 29th! We are thrilled with this win for children, pets, and wildlife, and very grateful to Assemblymember Richard Bloom for his years of persistence in tackling this issue!

AB 1788 will prevent more poisonings by strongly curbing the use of second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (with some exceptions) until the California Department of Pesticide Regulation finishes its reevaluation, a process put in motion by a lawsuit filed by RATS in 2018 under the California Environmental Quality Act. You can send the Governor a note of thanks for signing this important bill here.
