Last month, California's legislature advanced Senate Bill ("SB" or "Bill") SB-1 to the Assembly. The Bill is intended to ensure that California's health and safety standards remain as rigorous as those in place on January 17, 2017, during the Obama Administration. SB-1 would require state agencies to monitor various federal standards and amend California's standards to remain as stringent as the Obama-Era "baseline" when federal roll-backs under the current Administration occur. It would also allow citizens to file suit to enforce "baseline" federal and state standards if such standards are weakened.
