Bag pre-emption laws show 'questionable ethics'

It is ironic that the letter from by Patty Long, interim CEO of the Plastics Industry Association, seeks to invoke ethics. The concerns raised by As You Sow and Walden Asset Management about the association’s efforts to pass plastic bag pre-emption laws challenge the questionable ethics of using its lobbying power to deprive millions of Americans from exercising their right to enact local bag ban ordinances, which have been demonstrated to be successful and protect their communities from plastic pollution.
