The American Chemistry Council spent $500,000 on a campaign to defeat the ban.

Connecticut, Minnesota and Canada have passed similar bans. Supporters rallied in Sacramento last week, carrying their message to the capitol that a chemical associated with endocrine-related diseases like diabetes and infertility doesn’t belong in baby bottles and sippy cups.
