The CPCPA has written a letter strongly urging the Appropriations Committee to reject AB 262 unless concrete is removed from the bill.
AB 262 seeks to measure environmental impact during only the early stages of the life cycle rather than the entire life cycle. This “cradle to gate” approach is not appropriate for products purchased with the expectation of a long, reliable service life. If implemented in its current form, California procurement offices would be forced to disregard the long-term environmental impact and long-term performance of concrete products.
