California State Assembly to Consider Imposing 25-Cent Plastic Bag Fee

Hey, County Council. If you want to do something to help the environment and recycling, consider this.

Following the unceremonious axing a few months ago of a proposal that would've banned outright the use of plastic bags, several Los Angeles-based state legislators are once again girding for battle over the introduction of a bill that would impose a 25-cent fee on the use of the offending bags. This measure closely resembles a voluntary plastic bag reduction measure that was enacted by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors.
