Monrovia Assemblymember's Grease Bill Approved by Committee

A bill by Monrovia's Assemblymember, Chris Holden, to combat the growing number of kitchen grease thefts, was overwhelmingly approved today in Assembly Transportation Committee.

AB 1566 beefs up requirements for licensed haulers, increasing the penalties for stealing grease and allowing law enforcement to impound vehicles for up to 15 days.

According to the California Department of Food and Agriculture, a typical fast-food restaurant produces 150-250 pounds of grease a week and a fully loaded pumper truck could bring in as much as $900 at a recycling center.

AB 1566 now goes to Assembly Agriculture for consideration.
