Guest: Cristina Garcia, California State Assemblymember, Bell Gardens, California The Tampon Tax. That’s what it’s been dubbed in California, where State Assemblymember Cristina Garcia made it the subject of the bill she introduced on the first day of the 2016 legislative session. It would make feminine hygiene products exempt from sales tax. Canada lifted its Tampon Tax last summer after thousands of people signed an online petition. Five states in the U.S. also exempt tampons and feminine napkins from tax. California would be the most populous state in the country to do it, if Garcia’s bill passes.
