I don't think that what the senate came up with in this bill is what would yield the best results for the environment. I would like to hear why they chose this tactic over other ones. It seems to me that a higher tax (5 cents isn't enough incentive for me) or a ban on all bags with the option of purchasing a sturdy reusable bag would be a much better solution. Plus, you would think that someone supporting the ban in this discussion would bring data on the outcome of plastic bag bans in other cities . . . Instead, the senator went for logical fallacies like attacking the opponents character and the number of images of animals harmed by plastic bags without comparison to other harmful waste.
