Poll Shows Californians Support Right to Know Legislation for Cleaning Product Ingredients 

A new poll out today shows California voters overwhelmingly support legislation to require ingredient labeling on cleaning products sold in the state. Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) introduced the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act of 2017 (Senate Bill 258) to require detailed ingredient labels on cleaning products sold in the state, as previously reported by Happi.
 
“It is clear that Californians want to know what is in their cleaning products so they can make good choices for themselves and their families,” said Sen. Lara. “Unknown chemicals are lurking in our homes and workplaces, and it’s the reason janitors and domestic workers have higher rates of asthma, respiratory illnesses and birth defects. The Cleaning Product Right to Know Act will protect the health and safety of workers and all families.” 
 
Major findings of the poll include:
 
• More than three-quarters of voters (78%) are supportive of legislation to label cleaning product chemicals.
 
• Support crosses party lines with 87% of Democrats, 76% of no-party voters and 67% of Republicans in favor.
 
• Nearly three-quarters of voters (72%) would be more likely to support their legislator if they backed the proposed bill. 
 
Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates (FM3) conducted the poll of 1,000 registered California voters from January 15-19, 2017, before Senate Bill 258 was introduced.
