Expanded bottle bill: Revenue enhancer, environmental initiative, or both?
Do you support expanding the “bottle bill” to include non-carbonated beverages, such as water and juice?
Is the idea just a tax in disguise? Or is it an effort to clean up our environment? Or both?
Note that this perennially-filed bill finally got through the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy for the first time last session. I serve on that committee, so I am looking for input on the topic. Vote in the poll at the top of this page and weigh in with your comments below.
