Earlier this month, Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill 246 (Quirk), which allows the Contractors State License Board to take disciplinary action against a contractor for violating state or local laws prohibiting illegal dumping.  AB 246 provides another tool to take action against those who engage in illegal dumping. Illegal dumping continues to be a serious problem in many parts of the state, especially in unincorporated rural areas, and local governments spend considerable resources each year responding to and cleaning up illegal waste disposal.  The bill was sponsored by the Contractors State License Board and supported by a broad coalition of contractors and local governments. RCRC supported the measure and its letter urging the Governor’s signature can be found here.
