Remember how San Francisco banned plastic bags? Now Board of Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi is after paper bags, too. Mirkarimi, the author of the city's plastic bag ban, introduced legislation yesterday that would require stores to offer a 10-cent rebate to people who bring their own bags. "I believe we now need to tackle paper bags," Mirkarimi told the San Francisco Chronicle. "So when the question is asked, paper or plastic, the answer is neither." His proposed ordinance would fine large retailers up to $500 if they failed to provide the rebate.
