The new year brings longer days, the (eventual) promise of warmer weather, and an inevitable deluge of new legislation as states come back for their 2017 sessions.
By the end of this week 43 states will already be back to work, so be sure to stay on top of the latest bills impacting the recycling industry using ISRI's State Legislative Tracking System.
You can view bills by state, sort by the different issues and commodities they impact, build custom reports, sign up for alerts on bills of interest, and more! Just login with your ISRI username and password and explore. If you'd like more information on a particular bill, pointers on how to use the system, or details on any of ISRI's other advocacy resources, please contact Danielle Waterfield or Justin Short.
