KS Bill Would Stop Cities from Banning Plastic Bags

MetroSourceFebruary 21, 2020

State lawmakers are discussing a bill that would prevent municipalities from banning single-use plastic bags.

Authorities say Salina, Wichita and Lawrence are among the cities considering such a ban, which is typically based on environmental concerns.

Supporters say the bags are already recyclable and any ban would have a minor impact on trash.

Opponents argue the bill infringes on the rights of cities to pursue home-rule policies.
