STATEWIDE PLASTIC BAG BAN DECLINED 09-01-10 10:00 a.v.

A statewide bill, proposing a ban on plastic shopping bags, was declined yesterday. Assembly Bill 19-98, which would’ve been the first statewide ban, received 14 votes in the Senate, 7 short of the majority it needed to pass. The bill called for the ban to take effect in supermarkets and large retail stores in 2012, and would have applied to smaller stores in 2013. Supporters of AB 19-98, say the 19-billion plastic bags people use every year harm the environment, and cost the state 25-million dollars annually to collect and transport to landfills. Legislators opposed it saying that it would add an extra financial burden on consumers and businesses.
