California plastic straw law serves jail time to restaurant workers

FILE A California lawmaker reportedly wants to make it a criminal offense to serve a plastic straw to a customer who did not request California plastic straw law serves jail time to restaurant workers
Patty Aguilar | 30 January, 2018, 19:08

Majority Leader Ian Calderon introduced last week Assembly Bill 1884, which would require servers at sit-down restaurants to ask customers if they want a straw before providing one.

Calderon also emphasized the bill isn't a ban on plastic straws. I didn't actually ask for penalties. "The penalties are attached to the code section the bill is now in", he said when asked about the fines. Calderon says it's aimed at reducing the environmental damage from tons of plastic that wind up each year in US landfills, waterways and the ocean.

However, detractor turned over Calderon immediately.

Though the proposal may sound drastic to some, the pitch to move diners away from plastic straws is not a new on in California.

California State Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon, D-Whittier, sought to address pollution by focusing on plastic - specifically, plastic straws, KGTV reported.

GLI Finance (GLIF) Rating Reiterated by Liberum Capital
RBC Capital Markets maintained Associated British Foods plc (LON:ABF) on Tuesday, September 1 with "Sector Perform" rating. Societe Generale reissued their sell rating on shares of ITV (LON:ITV) in a research note issued to investors on Friday.

The law wouldn't apply to bars or fast-food restaurants, but only to sit-down restaurants.

"What about those little umbrellas that go in drinks, why aren't you criminalizing that?" user @KeithOsmun said.

But Calderon's proposal is not novel: Dine-in restaurants in Davis, Calif., must already ask customers if they want a straw thanks to an ordinance adopted previous year.

Calderon, in a statement, said 500 million straws are used in the USA daily, citing the National Park Service. "It is a small step towards curbing our reliance on these convenience products, which will hopefully contribute to a change in consumer attitudes and usage".
