The Assembly Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials Committee Records consist of approximately 40 cubic feet of textual
records and audio-visual materials. The records cover the years 1980-2004 and are comprised of bill files, hearing files,
subject files, and correspondence.
The California State Assembly first considered bills relating to toxics and the environment during the 1979-1980 legislative
session when the Toxic Substances subcommittee was created under the Labor, Employment, and Consumer Affairs Committee. By
passage of House Resolution 15 on January 29, 1980, The Assembly Rules Committee officially created an independent committee
for toxics legislation called the Assembly Consumer Protection and Toxic Materials Committee.
