Bag ban stalls, bottle bill may be headed to Massachusetts votersPosted on July 20, 2014 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
Efforts to curb plastic use and waste in Massachusetts are foundering.
A proposed state-wide bag ban that drew much attention when it was proposed last spring has since stalled out, and a decades-long effort to include nearly all plastic bottles in the state’s deposit program will be decided by voters this fall after it flopped in the legislature.
This is pathetic of the legislators. Just sign the bill and move on. It is not that big of a deal to sign. The environmental benefits are enormous.
For a state that prides it self on its water ways, this is a very irresponsible in action by the people that can make a big difference.
