Instead it’s being driven from the company’s ...

On Monday (April 14) the Natural Resource Committee of the California State Legislature is set to vote on a measure that would impose a mandatory fee of 25-cents per-bag on the use of free, single-use plastic carrier bags at all grocery stores and pharmacies in the state, regardless of the stores' size.

The Blacks, who are in their 70s and live in Redwood City, were unable to negotiate an affordable lease directly with the landowner. "We can't afford what they're asking and still make a living," Kay Black said. Staying in business would also mean buying the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Obama won't live up to his word on immigration

It sounds like the White House strategy will be to bring the bill up after November, when the lame-duck Congress won't have to worry so much about getting re-elected (sure).
