California Legislature Passes Statewide Bag Ban

On Thursday, August 28th, the California Assembly approved SB270, a bill to ban single-use plastic shopping bags and put a fee on paper bags. The bill then headed to the Senate for a concurrence on August 29th and is now on  Governor Jerry Brown's desk for a final sign-off.  This precedent-setting bill is the first bag ban to make it through a state legislature!
