Check this out - Arnold Schwarzenegger, the King of the Land of Fruits & Nuts (insert his odd pronunciation of the state's name here...), is ready, willing and able to sign the California Bag Ban bill, AB 1998 (fact sheets here), as soon as it gets through the senate (it has already passed the Assembly). Check this bold, concise, and bulgingly-muscular statement from Der Governator:
“I commend the Assembly for passing AB 1998, which would make California the first state in the nation to ban plastic bags. This bill will be a great victory for our environment and I applaud Assemblywoman Brownley for working on this effort.”
AWRIGHT! DOOD! There's no question about his stance on the issue! Now it's the electorate's chance: have your zip code ready and go sign the Action Alert AND call your assigned politician's office - I did mine and it took less than a minute. Believe it or not, this direct contact really works.
Git On It!
