Governor Poised to Sign Bill Making California Nation’s First To Ban Fur Sales

Governor Poised to Sign Bill Making California Nation’s First To Ban Fur Sales
BY Laura Coleman September 13, 2019

Gov. Gavin Newsom could soon sign legislation prohibiting the creation of new items made from the fur of undomesticatednimals, such as mink. 

On Wednesday, the California State Senate voted to approve Assembly Bill 44. If Newsom signs the bill into law, as his record indicates he will, California will become the first state in the nation to ban the sale of new fur products. 

“Given the industry’s reliance on practices that are inherently cruel, and with so many alternatives to the use of fur, there is no place for fur in a sustainable and humane future,” said Assemblymember Laura Friedman (DGlendale), the bill’s sponsor. 

AB 44 makes it unlawful to manufacture, sell, offer for sale, display for sale, trade, give, donate or otherwise distribute a fur product in the state.
