I find it interesting that none of the beverage manufacturers or retailers of beverages provide their containers that wreak havoc on the environment for free and people are okay with that, but somehow getting charged for grocery bags is out of the question. :\

The town of Phelan is doing it again. They are useing illegal alien anchor brats to build Phelan road. What do the thousands of Americans think driving thrugh there. Where is ICE? These are American jobs. So why are they giving all the work to the illegals. Whos in back of this. They are useing my tax money to pay wetbacks to do my job, while im unemployed. Americans are mad as hell at this one. I would not doubt if we do not here about shots being fired.

Since Burt’s death, his descendants tried multiple times to get portions of the “golden egg” by attempting to break the trust in court, but none was successful in having any significant part of his estate awarded.

The strange case, which became public earlier this month,“one of the most bizarre, if not the most bizarre, ways of distributing money after death that I have ever run into.”

I'm fine with using re-useable bags. Just wish I didn't have to get taxed every time I need to buy a new one.

They are going to do away with plastic bags. Ok, what about when you buy fruit, vegetables and things that you need a plastic bag for. What next, bring your own shopping cart. We are being over run by undocumented illegal alien scum and Americas idiots can only think about plastic bags. who on earth is in back of all of this. If its just a handful of people then we need to get rid of them now. IDIOTS. Id like to see the mayor of Los Angeles get replaced by an American. Remember, hiring an American is the same as made in America. Like they say white is right. And clean

Now that's an idea... Reusable bags and no tax. That would boost that market.

Water remains a key issue. In addition to possible contamination of surface and underground water from fracking fluids, the sheer volume of water required poses challenges, especially in South Texas, which faces a severe drought and rapidly diminishing water levels in the local aquifer.

At the rate wells are being drilled,“there’s definitely going to be a problem,” said Bay L., a local water official.

Mabhunu, a murder detective, is in police detention at barracks on the outskirts of Bulawayo. The legality of the case against him was challenged by Beatrice Mtetwa, a leading Zimbabwean human rights lawyer.

"There has to be a law saying the toilet is the president's, but this was a public one," she said. "They will have had to issue a proclamation in the government gazette specifying it. I bet they didn't do that."

Until this new law, the price of the bags was included in the price of the items sold. Charging for the bags, retailers will make more money, or they will reduce the prices of the items sold in these bags. In both cases it's the consumer that pays the bags.
The new law does not change who pays for the bags, but makes the buying more time wasting, and the retailers more prone to gouge the consumers.

Wimmer’s bill will be considered and debated in the new year when the 2012 legislative session begins in Utah.

Lawmakers in other states, including New Hampshire and California, have already looked into banning TSA gropedowns.
