Capitol Strategies: State agencies: No green-cleaning products for schools

Excerpted from this post at Capitol Strategies

The Green Cleaning Bill HF823 -- also one of McCarthy's leadership
bills -- will not be going forward this year. State Agencies
(Department of Public Health, Department of Education, and Department
of Administrative Services) that would be responsible for overseeing
the use green-cleaning products in public schools expressed concerns
about money and resources required to implement the initiative. The
cost-benefit ratio would have been very high. School children and
school staff across Iowa would no longer be subjected to toxic
cleaning products, while State Agencies would merely be required the
publish a list of green cleaning products on a state website.
