Senators Ernst, Grassley, & Blumenthal introduce bipartisan bill to increase take-back.
The AIDD Act would address the cost of participation by creating a demonstration program allowing five states to apply for grant funding from the Department of Justice. The selected states would then issue a report detailing how the grant funding was administered, which entities received funding, and how it impacted participation rates – providing additional insight into how best to improve the program and increase participation nationwide.
I will write to these senators, suggesting that EPR is a better option. I urge you to do likewise.
