Blackfoot Says “No” to Plastic Bag Ban
BLACKFOOT, Idaho (AP) — The Blackfoot City Council in eastern Idaho has unanimously rejected a proposed ban on plastic bags.
KIFI-TV reports that council members at the meeting on Tuesday said research they did led them to conclude such a ban would be government overreach. Snake River High School senior Hayley Lemon proposed the ban in February as part of the 16-year-old's senior project.
The council at its next meeting is scheduled to consider the city's ordinance prohibiting alcohol sales on Sundays.
