Hi All,

New York's "Drug Take Back Act<http://nyassembly.gov/leg/?default_fld=&leg_video=&bn=S09100&term=2017&Summary=Y&Actions=Y>" passed the Senate and Assembly unanimously today, the final day of the 2018 Legislative Session. This Act follows the EPR approach in establishing a state-wide drug take-back program paid for by drug manufacturers, requiring chain pharmacies to provide consumers with convenient and free drug disposal. It marks a huge win for drug stewardship and highlights what can be achieved by the hard work of a dedicated coalition. Thanks to the Citizens Campaign for the Environment, the NY Product Stewardship Council, and many others that joined PSI in helping pass a strong piece of legislation.

We have every reason to believe that Governor Cuomo to sign the Act, and we will let you know when he does.

Best,
Vivian
