 IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED - MUNICIPAL VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD

The following Senate bill has been placed on the Agenda and can be heard on the House floor at any time.

SB 1465 by Sen. James Leewright and Rep. Tim Downing creates new law  preempting political subdivisions regarding auxiliary containers.  An auxiliary container is any bag, cup, package, container, bottle or other packing that is made of a variety of substances designed for, but not limited to, consuming, transporting, or protecting merchandise, food or beverages from a food service facility or retail facility.  Political subdivisions are prohibited from restricting, taxing, prohibiting or regulating the use, disposition or sale of auxiliary containers.  An exception for this preemption is if the use of the auxiliary container is on property owned by a county or municipality.  Nothing shall prohibit or limit any county or municipal ordinance or agreement regarding a recycling program or the disposal of solid waste.

Please contact your Representatives as soon as possible by clicking here and ask them to vote NO on this bill.
