	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 1343, as introduced, Huffman. Solid waste: architectural paint.

   Existing law prohibits the disposal of latex paint in the land or
waters of the state and authorizes certain persons to accept latex
paint for recycling.
   This bill would create the architectural paint recovery program
and would require architectural paint manufacturers, on and after
January 1, 2010, to develop and implement strategies to reduce the
generation of postconsumer paint, promote the reuse of postconsumer
paint, and manage the end-of-life of postconsumer paint through
collecting, transporting, and processing postconsumer paint. The
manufacturers would be allowed to establish a cost recovery system to
collect a fee from the consumer on all architectural paint sold in
this state sufficient to recover the costs of the end-of-life
management of postconsumer paint in an environmentally sound fashion.

   The bill would require manufacturers to submit a report to the
California Integrated Waste Management Board by July 1, 2010, and
each year thereafter, describing their paint recovery efforts. On and
after January 1, 2012, the board would be required to submit a
report to the Legislature describing the results of the architectural
paint recovery program, including certain recommendations and
financial analysis.
   This bill would make the program inoperable on July 1, 2013, and
would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2014.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: no.
