California Seeks to be First State to Limit Plastic Straws
SACRAMENTO (AP) — If you want a straw with your drink, you soon may have to ask for it at California restaurants. Lawmakers on Thursday sent Gov. Jerry Brown a measure that supporters say would make California the first state to bar full-service restaurants from giving out single-use plastic straws unless customers request them. It wouldn't ban straws as some cities have in a bid to combat waste.
