Effort to Ban Water Softeners Fails

An effort in the California Assembly to ban water softeners failed recently as Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the bill. This bill if passed would have had significant impact on the water filtration industry.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 14, 2008 - An effort in the California Assembly to ban water softeners failed recently as Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the bill.

According to the Sacramento Bee (http://www.sacbee.com/111/story/1146604.html), the bill would have allowed “cities, counties and special districts—whichever entity oversees wastewater—to ban water softeners.”

The proponents of the bill argued that salt levels from water softeners make it more difficult for water to be recycled.

But Governor Schwarzenegger, citing the impact on consumers and the bill’s “little positive impact,” vetoed the legislation.

Peter Censky, executive director of the Water Quality Association (WQA), said, “We created a cascade of opposition from the makers, sellers and users of water softeners.” And in the end, the nearly 1,000 letters that were sent to legislators on behalf of the opposition coalition carried the day.

The WQA and the Pacific Water Quality Association will continue to monitor the situation and inform their constituencies of any recommended actions.

This bill if passed would have had significant impact on the water filtration industry. It also would have limited the rights of private citizens to treat their own water in their own home. http://www.WaterFilters.NET applauds Governor Schwarzenegger in making the right decision in this case.
