22 Oct Proposition 67: Plastic Bag Ban on Single-Use Plastic Bags (YES)
Explanation: Proposition 67 would uphold the contested legislation banning plastic bags that was enacted by the California State Legislature through Senate Bill 270. SB 270 prohibits large grocery stores and pharmacies from providing plastic single-use carryout bags and ban small grocery stores, convenience stores and liquor stores from doing so in the following year.
BWW Analysis: We know We know, we love a good plastic bag as much as the next person. It can be reused for so many things. However, the fact is that plastic bags are unnecessary for our groceries and other products, but have a real impact on our environment. This proposition would uphold the grocery bag ban legislation, a hard fought agreement between grocery stores and the state legislature.
Please note that if both Props 65 and 67 pass, the Proposition with the most “yes” votes would supersede the other proposition.
