State Organic Bill Clears California Assembly Floor, Moves to Senate

Due to overwhelming support from CCOF members, the California State Assembly voted to approve Assembly Bill (AB) 1826—the California Organic Food and Farming Act—and forward it to the California Senate.

Please join the 235 individuals and businesses who publicly support AB 1826. Write your senator today and show your support!

The bill is expected to be voted out of the California Senate Committee on Agriculture this week and then move to the Senate Committee on Appropriations.

The California Organic Food and Farming Act (AB 1826) will:

  • Eliminate duplicative paperwork for certified organic producers
  • Reduce or cap California State Organic Program fees
  • Update the role of the California State Organic Program to support organic agriculture through education, outreach, and other programmatic activities
