I think a tax on any non-reusable bag would be best. I wonder if because Oregon has a large timber and paper manufacturing industry, is this influencing senator Haas' push to ban plastic bags? Also, was any of the campaign contributions he accepted derived from any timber or paper lobbying group/idustry? Why wouldn't Haas advocate for a tax on both paper and plastic if he REALLY wanted to help the enviornment?
