The California Pipe Trades Council, based in San Francisco, has spent $8368 lobbying San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer and city attorney Jan Goldsmith regarding its “opposition to proposed building standards ordinance to approve ABS and PVC pipe in high rise residential buildings.”

ABS stands for Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and PVC is short for Polyvinyl chloride. Last July, the Monterey/Santa Cruz Counties Building and Construction Trades Council went after the California State University at Monterey for using ABS in a new student housing complex, asserting it “is a known toxic and carcinogen and you don’t want to breathe its fumes.”
