One State Just Made Diapers and Feminine Products Tax-Free

Residents in California are celebrating now that a new law making diapers and feminine supplies tax-free has gone into effect.

"I mean, these are things that we have to use. We don't have too many other options but I think any way we can save some money, especially with kids and ourselves, is a great thing," Gina Guerrero, a resident of Orcutt told KSBY-TV.

Under Senate Bill 92, the sale and use of “diapers for infants, toddlers, and children, and menstrual hygiene products, defined as tampons, specified sanitary napkins, menstrual sponges, and menstrual cups” are now exempt from sales taxes.

While residents are happy about the change, the tax from these products alone will cut $55 million in revenue, the Associated Press reported last May. Based on estimates, this tax will save families roughly $100 per year.

"I mean, that is a week's worth of food for a lot of families, so it will absolutely make a huge difference," Solvang resident Kate Schaefer said.

This bill was part of Gov. Newsom's "parents’ agenda." Other initiatives included utilizing revenue from legal marijuana sales to expand child care programs throughout the state and expanding paid family leave in the state from six to eight weeks, The Hill reported.
