SNES: AB-1788, the use of second generation anticoagulants, passed the California Legislature and the Governor now has less than 15 days to approve it.

By Ian Gilson, PhD, CFA



California AB-1788 was passed by the California Legislature on August 28, 2020 and was sent to the Governor for his signature. He has 15 days to approve it (we assume those are 15 in session days).

The bill requires a reevaluation of the use of second generation anticoagulants that “continued use is not reasonably expected to result in significant adverse effects to non-target wildlife”.

The bill will regulate the use of second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) until the Director of Pesticide Regulation certifies to the Secretary of State that the Department of Pesticide Regulation has completed the reevaluation.

It will take some time before the additional requirements are completed and we do not expect any immediate impact on sales and earnings of SenesTech Inc.
