And the myriad of state regulations are literally taking shape now. Join MBI Executive Director and Government Affairs Director Tom Hardiman as he leads this conversation about the industry’s latest efforts to develop compliance paths, updates on various state rules and regulations, and the next steps for containers. ***This webinar is free for all MBI member and $99 for non-members.***
