Full Circle of Living and Dying sent a letter in support of AB2592 in 2020. However, after broad bipartisan support, in August 2020 the California State Senate shelved the bill due to pandemic-related budget concerns.
Update March 2021: Assembly member Cristina Garcia, District 58, is bringing forward AB 501, to expand the ecological death care options available in California. If passed, AB 501 will legalize natural organic reduction, in California.
You can read the bill and follow its progress on the California legislature’s website.
Full Circle of Living and Dying has once again submitted a letter of support for AB501.
On April 6, 2021 the Assembly Business and Professions Committee will hold a public hearing to consider the bill. Public support will be critical to moving this proposed legislation out of the committee for a vote by the full legislature. You can find directions for sending a letter of support on Recompose website. Please submit your letter by Sunday, March 28 at midnight PT.
Your letters will help convince lawmakers this bill is timely and worth funding now.
