Plastic bag bill rejected

(Paper or Plastic?)…You will continue to be asked to decide for the foreseeable future.

SB 405 has been rejected. The Senate bill called for phasing out the use of plastic bags at stores throughout the state. Authors of the bill said the use of plastic bags have turned into an environmental disaster. The senate heard the bill Thursday. They voted the bill down, saying it would be too expensive to phase out the use of plastic bags. Authors of the bill will now have to start all over, if they still want to pursue the ban. Several individual communities around the state already make the use of plastic bags illegal.
