A bill that would ban microplastics in personal care products – which failed last session– will be on the agenda as well.
The drought has prompted water conservation bills, including one that would set standards for onsite water recycling.
"Epecially as we get into larger apartments and into cities it allows us to look at a way that we can capture that rainwater and enable us to use that efficiently and quickly,” says Dan Jacobson with Environment California.
Another water conservation bill would put a measure on the ballot that could make it easier for cities to fund systems that capture, treat and recycle stormwater.
Lawmakers will also debate a bill that would require automotive oil sold in California to meet a new standard, enabling drivers to travel 10,000 miles before needing an oil change.
