The state Senate on Friday gave final legislative approval to a measure that would phase out single-use plastic bags in supermarkets, pharmacies and convenience stores as part of an effort to rid beaches and streets of litter."Single-use"? Who says so? Why can't people who don't reuse them just put them in their recycling bin? Why do we have to ban something that's useful? (Ans: because liberals like compulsion. It's who they are, it's what they do.)
The measure, which now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown for consideration, would allow stores to charge customers 10 cents to provide paper or reusable plastic bags as an alternative to single-use bags.
I wonder if anyone's considered the water that will be necessary to wash all the reusable bags we're supposed to use now.
