For Plastics Blog readers outside California, here's the advertisement that the American Chemistry Council prepared to fight AB 1998, the bill that would ban plastic bags. The ad is tough on the state Legislature, accusing it of focusing on a relatively minor issue (banning plastic bags) while it failes to act on more important problems. The ad also says the ban would be bad for the economy, a burden on consumers, and that it would kill manufacturing jobs.
