California set to ban plastic bags in 2015

Posted on 29 January 2014

California lawmakers were due to unveil a compromise bill Friday that would, if passed, ban single-use plastic bags and impose a 10-cent fee on customers using store-provided bags starting in July 2015.

While the bill has not yet gone to a vote, lawmakers say it has broad support in the state legislature.
