California half a billion dollars to sit and think about carpet

Filed under: Gross Politix,sigh — Sagacious Himself @ 10:44 am

Why is california bankrupt?  Perhaps spending $500,000,000, part on “sitting”, studying carpet standards.  How much does sitting pay??


California Gold Sustainable Carpet Standard


The department consists of six divisions, 23 operational offices, 4,000 employees and a budget in excess of half a billion dollars. Its diverse functions include e-commerce and telecommunications; sitting, acquisition, development, leasing, disposal and management…

To what end?

The purpose of the California Gold Sustainable Carpet Standard is to establish consistent requirements for sustainable carpet products. These requirements are intended to form the basis of conformity assessment programs, such as third-party certification or registration.   Sustainable carpet products that comply with the Draft Standard may be certified or registered to the California Gold Sustainable Carpet Standard, if the products also comply with the additional prerequisite credits and requirements defined in this Standard (see Table 3). Following the completion of the ANSI process for the Draft Standard, the State of California will reevaluate its adoption of the California Gold Sustainable Carpet Standard to determine if the new ANSI Standard meets the State’s environmentally preferable objectives.
