Prop 65

California Carry-Out Bag Revenue Initiative

This initiative would redirect money collected by grocery and retail stores through the sale of carry-out bags into a special fund administered by the Wildlife Conservation Board to support specified categories of environmental projects. Would only apply if it passed in conjunction with Prop 67.

Bottomline: The Chamber OPPOSES this proposition because it was initiated in an effort to reverse support for the plastic bag ban. This initiative does not outline how the funds would be spent, nor does it provide for any oversight.
