Plastic Bag Bill Defeated ~ Sacramento

"...AB 1998, which would’ve banned single-use plastic bags at supermarkets and other selected retailers statewide, went down to defeat by a 21-14 vote in the California state Senate last night....

These are the 21 senators that condemned sea turtles, fish and marine mammals to continued hazardous conditions: Aanestad, Ashburn, Calderon, Codgill, Correa, Denham, Ducheny, Dutton, Emerson, Florez, Harman, Hollingsworth, Huff, Negrete McLeod, Price, Romero, Runner, Walters, Wolk, Wright and Wyland.

Please remember these names.  They are not friends of the marine environment and should be held accountable for their actions.  Please write them or call them and tell them you’re upset by their anti-environmental vote.  Feel free to mail them your plastic bags as well."
