Ruggerio Introduces Plastic Bag Bill

Senate President Dominick Ruggerio is introducing a bill to reduce the use of plastic bags in retail establishments. Ruggerio notes 14 communities in Rhode Island have already enacted policies to promote and encourage the use of recyclable bags, and he thinks it's appropriate to be consistent throughout the state. He says everyone knows how dangerous plastic pollution is to oceans and marine life and how it contributes to climate change.
