California Voters Favor Plastic Bag Ban


Results from Election Day in California show that voters have expressed their favor in Proposition 67, which bars plastic bags in stores across the state. The legislation was previously signed into law in 2014, but was forced onto the ballot this year following referendum.

According to Fox 11 in Los Angeles, opponents of the ban claim it will lead to a tax increase—10 cents a bag—that will amount to $300 million annually. The ban already is enforced in many California cities including Los Angeles. Voters did, however, defeat Proposition 65, which sought to use money raised from the statewide ban for a special fund administered by the Wildlife Conservation Board.
