Houston Says Plastic Shopping Bags Are A Problem; Undecided Yet On Possible Solutions


Saying that plastic shopping bags are a nuisance and a problem for Springfield, Mayor Mike Houston is interested in taking some kind of action to reduce their prevalence on streets and in landfills.  But Houston isn’t ready to commit to any particular plan of action yet. 

 

Appearing live on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show,” Houston says he wants to see what other cities have done to reduce littering and other environmental impacts from shopping bags. 

 

Alderman Gail Simpson is working on a plan to impose a “user fee” on the bags, but Houston says he’s concerned that could become… quote… a “nightmare” for the stores and shoppers that use them.
