The California State Senate voted overwhelmingly to pass SB 445, the Underground Storage Tank Legislation

After passing the assembly with an overwhelming and bi-partisan vote margin, the bill moved quickly at the Senate, ultimately receiving 32 yes votes when only 26 were needed. Next stop for SB 445 is Governor Jerry Brown’s Desk.

This is good news for communities burdened by lingering underground storage tank release cases. The State helps communities clean-up unauthorized releases and revitalize properties, in turn revitalizing local communities.
