Fur Labeling Law To Hit California State Senate (POLL)

Posted: Updated:

By the Associated Press

Clothes that are made with animal fur would need special labels in California under legislation adopted Monday by the State Assembly. Lawmakers voted 46 to 7 to close a loophole in federal law that allows many fur products to go unlabeled. Current law requires labels only for garments that have $150 or more worth of animal fur. The bill now goes to the State Senate. "I think there is an expectation that if clothing isn't labeled as real fur it must be fake, but this isn't always the case," Fiona Ma, the author of the bill, said in a statement after the vote. "People have a right to know if they are buying raccoon, dog or a polyester blend."
