The annual business meeting on the afternoon of August 13th will witness the election, by the membership, of a third of the Board of Directors.  This will be followed by a brief meeting of the Board to elect officers for new two-year terms beginning in November 2014, and to consider such other items as may be properly placed before the Board.  The business portion of the meeting will once again be conducted in the large private suite at Raley Field. A festive evening reception and baseball game will cap off the day's activities.


The remainder of the time during the two days will be comprised of key legislative briefings and Capitol office visits, timely regulatory briefings with influential decision-makers at CalEPA, and a visit to the state's emergency response nerve center in Rancho Cordova, the headquarters of the CA Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), for a tour and a series of security, safety and emergency response briefings.


Please mark your calendars and plan on attending.  For more details regarding agenda, registration, and lodging contact jrulrich@comcast.net or Thomas.r.jacob@gmail.com

U.S. House Passes Multi-year CFATS Authorization

With Passage of H.R. 4007 Attention Shifts to the Senate

(Posted 07/09/14)


The following note was received from Dan Moss, Sr. manager for Government Relations


"THANK YOU for your engagement yesterday [07/08/14], which helped ensure that important CFATS legislation passed in the U.S. House of Representatives!


Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass H.R. 4007, The CFATS Authorization and Accountability Act of 2014.  Earlier in the day, Congress heard from several of YOU [including CICC] - specialty and batch chemical manufacturers who loudly and clearly voiced support for the bill. With your feedback on how this legislation impacts your business and actually makes America safer, Congress chose to work together and pass the bill by a simple voice vote.


The legislation is a multi-year authorization bill that funds the CFATS program for three years and allows additional options for your company to screen individuals who access your facilities. Thanks in part to you, this smart legislation is now one step closer to being enacted into law.  Read more.
