California's senate didn't have the balls to ban plastic bags at grocery, convenience and drug stores. But this week L.A County might do what Sacramento wouldn't.
And Heal the Bay, long a proponent of polluting the planet with needless bags, will be there before Tuesday morning's vote for a rally outside the Hall of Administration.
While the group says the ban would make this one of the largest city/county governments in the nation to outlaw plastic bags, the move would still have limited reach:
It would apply to stores in unincorporated areas (PDF) controlled by county government, such as Marina Del Rey, Topanga Canyon, Rancho Dominguez and East San Gabriel.
Still, the county states that a million people live in these communities.
The rally happens from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Tuesday at 500 West Temple St., downtown.
