OFFICIAL TITLE AND SUMMARY

PREPARED BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

A "Yes" vote approves, and a "No" vote rejects, a statute that:

  • Prohibits grocery and certain other retail stores from providing single-use plastic or paper carryout bags to customers at point of sale.
  • Permits sale of recycled paper bags and reusable bags to customers, at a minimum price of 10 cents per bag.

SUMMARY OF LEGISLATIVE ANALYST'S ESTIMATE OF NET STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT FISCAL IMPACT:

  • Relatively small fiscal effects on state and local governments. Minor increase of less than a million dollars annually for state administrative costs, offset by fees. Possible minor savings to local governments from reduced litter and waste management costs.
