CALL TO ACTION- Tell Your Senator to Bag The Ban TODAY
The GA house is expected to consider SB 139 TODAY- it would prohibit local governments from regulating plastic bag use, thereby handcuffing cities and counties from taking action to create a safe, clean environment within their jurisdictions.
Over the past two decades, CRK has removed thousands of plastic bags from the Chattahoochee and its tributaries. These bags harm marine life and can take up to 1,000 years to break down (and they never fully decompose, they just break into smaller pieces).
SB 139 strips the power from local governments to decide how to best govern themselves. This bill would stop local communities—like Tybee Island, Athens and Decatur—from passing proposed local ordinances to ban single-use plastic bags at restaurants and retail outlets.
Contact your House Representative TODAY and urge him/her to VOTE NO ON SB 139! Your phone call or email will make a difference!
