Proposed State-wide Ban on Plastic Bags

Partially inspired by the recent ban in Barrington, on Tuesday, Rep. Maria Cimini (D-Dist. 7, Providence) introduced legislation that would prohibit retailers from handing out plastic bags. If it passes,  Rhode Island would be the first to enact a state-wide ban.  The developing story can be found online at and Channel 12 Eyewitness News, Providence Journal, and GoLocalProv.
