Joining the Fight Against Bans on Plastic Shopping Bags


Champaign - Champaign Mayor Don Gerald is joining the fight against bans on plastic shopping bags.  Gerard plans to go to Chicago on Tuesday to urge Governor Quinn to veto a bill that would prevent local governments from enacting a ban on plastic bags, or charge a tax.  

Gerard says, local elected leaders are best equipped to determine a course of action regarding plastic bags, and other solid waste issues.
