The fight against Californias proposed ban on portable generators faces a crucial test Thursday, August 26, when AB 1346 is slated to be considered by the California Senate Appropriations Committee.

Key Points: 
  • The fight against Californias proposed ban on portable generators faces a crucial test Thursday, August 26, when AB 1346 is slated to be considered by the California Senate Appropriations Committee.
  • Opponents have asked the committee to amend the bill by inserting an exemption for portable generators.
  • If the committee fails to do so, it is likely the full Senate will consider the unamended bill, putting Californians future access to life-saving portable generators at permanent risk.
  • Further, a five-year study of California residents found remarkable consistency in reasons they used portable generators.
