Das Williams thinks "outside the bag"

Yes. "Outside the Bag." Das has been working to get rid of single use plastic bags for quite some time. stop was Goleta State Beach where KCOY news interviewed Will Palamino, UCSB senior. Goleta Mayor Eric Onnen, City Councilmember Margaret Connell, and Santa Barbara City Councilmember Das Williams also stopped by the beach to speak in support of reducing plastic pollution. - Calpirg students

Now, it seems, the California legislature has finally caught up

Legislation that would ban many California stores from giving away single-use plastic bags has taken a step closer to becoming law. AB 1998 was passed by the Assembly Appropriations Committee on Friday and will be voted upon next Friday by the full Assembly. If passed and signed by the governor, the law would go into effect Jan. 1, 2012. - LATimes
Forward "Outside the Bag" thinking.

That's how I like MY State Assemblymembers or "soon-to-be" Assemblymembers.
