No More Hobby Paints for Sale in CA???

My local hobby shops say that CA enviornmental regulations make it difficult
to buy fuel proof model airplane paints and other items like Balsarite.
Apparently, CA requlations require that almost everthing be labelled as
"cancer causing", and manufacturer's refuse to label. Hobby shop owners then
become vulnerable to law suits form opportunist lawers representing phoney
enviornmental groups, etc.

This has effectively curtialed supplies of not only hobby paints but artist
paints and supplies, automotive paints.

Who do we write to to complain? I have asked this same question of the HIA,
waiting to hear from them.
