Instead of worrying about plastic bags, take care of the ILLEGAL immigration problem first. ILLEGAL immigration is definitely more of a priority than plastic bags ...
But on another note, if these same people can ban plaisic bags, then maybe they can ban ILLEGAL immigration ...

Nanny state! you must love it.
If those "public servants" have too much free time to work, how about proposing and passing AZ's SB1070 to stop illegal immigration? Get up and work for what we pay you!
What part of ILLEGAL you do not comprehend?

Removing the carry-out plastic bags has almost no effect. Markets where you only buy what you want is put in plastic bags - the only different is those bags don't have handles. Almost all the pre-packed food, including strawberries, almost everything at Asian markets, and the volumes sold at Costco is all wrapped in plastic.
"Their" complaint is the plastic damages the recycling equipment. What about the plastic wrapping in the pre-packed foods? My complaint is not all grocery stores have bins to recycle the plastic bags.

That's a good theory, and there may be some truth to it. The primary reason the politicians are so hot to impose Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment taxes on ordinary Californians - most of whom are poor, the result of failed revolutionary economic programs - is because in a more enlightened age the then politicians exempted worker *("middle")* class Californians from paying a Government food tax. The Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax is only the first step to imposing a Government food tax on increasingly impoverished Californians.
