LOS ANGELES, Feb. 25, 2019 (Local News) -With statewide restrictions on single-use plastic bags and plastic straws in place, state lawmakers this year will consider a sweeping measure that would force a major reduction of all other single-use plastics.

Meanwhile, a comprehensive bill addressing ocean concerns —  with language still being developed — will call for improving the quality of ocean water and wetlands, better salmon habitats, and rules that would protect whales from being hit by ships. “Those will be the major bills for the environmentalists,” said Dan Jacobson, Sacramento lobbyist of Environment California.
