The American Chemistry Council and the Progressive Bag Affiliates are reporting today that three California bills that were being closely watched by the plastics industry have failed to win approval from the state Senate Appropriations Committee. According to the groups, the bills -- which would have taxed plastic bags and banned polystyrene food service packaging and some PVC packaging -- failed to advance past the Senate Appropriations Committee on Aug. 7. While ACC and PBA tout the victories, keep in mind that more proposals to ban or tax plastic packaging in California are extremely likely.
