2014 Connecticut Expansion Bill
|Bill Number and Name||SB 67 Bill text|
|Primary Sponsor||Environment Committee|
|Beverages Covered||Adds juice, tea, sports drinks|
This short and simple bill has only one provision: adding juice, tea, and sports drinks to Connecticut's existing deposit system.
The 2014 bill was referred to the Joint Committee on Environment, where testimony was heard on February 28. Connecticut PIRG solicited widespread support for the Bill, including endorsements from municipal and statewide elected officials, public works directors, small businesses and other environmental groups, however the Environment Chair decided to let it die to focus on legislation proposed by the governor (SB 27) to improve the state’s Resources and Recovery Authority’s recycling and materials management strategy, reduce incineration, strengthen recycling and composting infrastructure and set a statutory goal of 60% waste diversion.
