California Safe Drinking Water & Toxic Enforcement Act (Proposition 65) (Prop 65) Proposition 65 is a California voter initiative passed in 1986 requiring the Governor to publish a list of chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. Updated quarterly, the list of "Prop 65 chemicals" currently contains over 700 chemical entries. The law states that a warning must be given for a listed chemical unless exposure is low enough to pose no significant risk of cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
