AB 298 - CA Plastic Bag Ban


State: CA
Country: USA
Launch Date: June 01 2012
Completion Date: August 31 2012
Status: Loss

UPDATE: AB 298 fails to pass, more info on the Coastal Blog. The California State Legislature is considering a bill that would ban plastic checkout bags at supermarkets, retail pharmacies and convenience stores statewide starting in 2014. Assembly Bill 298 would also require those retailers to provide reusable bags for sale and charge a fee for recycled paper bags as an incentive for customers to remember their reusable bags. California could be the first in the nation to pass a statewide plastic bag ban but it won't happen without your support!
