Ask Governor Murphy to please VETO the Bad Plastic Bag Fee Bill
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am asking you to please veto A.3267 (Huttle)/ S2600 (Ruiz). This bill will block a statewide ban on single use plastic bags and prevent towns from having their own ban. Jersey City and Hoboken recently passed a ban and Atlantic County and Edison are trying to move forward with one. Plastic has been a menace to the environment. When marine animals ingest these plastics, they can enter the food chain putting human health at risk because of the toxins in the plastic. Plastic can take up to 1,000 years to decompose and end up in our landfills or break down into micro-pieces that contaminate ecosystems and environments. Plastic bags are made from natural gas which means more fossil fuel use, more pipelines, and more fracking.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
