The Prince George’s County bag bill (PG 402-12) got the Mark Twain treatment from the Washington Post and elsewhere yesterday. More to come, but the County Affairs committee vote yesterday has merely slowed–not stopped–the bill’s progress in the General Assembly. It is a powerful reminder that supporters need to speak up, though! The plastics industry is paying for hundreds of robocalls, giving a false impression about support in the County.
Email–or even better, call–your delegates (especially Delegate Veronica Turner of District 26) today and tell them that you support a fee on disposable plastic and paper bags, and that they should too. More specifics about the campaign are posted on our County Campaign tab.
