Straw Poll: No to plastic bag ban

By Taxpayer Association of Oregon,

The 76th Oregon Legislative Assembly is scheduled to convene on January 10, 2011. Among bills on the agenda likely to be the considered is a statewide ban on the use of plastic bags. Oregon would break ground among states doing away with single-use plastic checkout bags. If passed, the ban would go into effect November 2011. (Oregonian 12-23-10)

A straw poll of over 300 taxpayer activists voters were asked whether they support or oppose such a ban. The great majority say “no” to the ban.
