Letter To The Editor: Sure To Be 2016 Campaign Issue

Former County Council Member

Please do not enact a plastic bag ban or tax on each bag.

There is no evidence that plastic bags are a problem in Los Alamos. In fact if the ban or tax is enacted, this would be a sign to prospective new businesses that Los Alamos is not a business friendly community. If the tax is enacted and the stated proposal to return the monies to the merchant becomes law there will be a law suit vis a vis the anti donation clause in the Constitution.

The ban will become a political campaign issue in 2016. The council has already passed one tax increase this year and another is piling on. When will it stop?
