CA vs Big Plastic Releases Local Government Endorsement List

California vs. Big Plastic, the coalition in support of California’s recent statewide ban on single-use plastic bags released a list of local government endorsements yesterday. 

In response to the multimillion dollar referendum effort to overturn the ban, which was launched days after Governor Brown signed the bill into law, 115 local elected officials across the state have signed on in support of the ban. Among these names include council members from 6 of California’s “Big 10.”

Since 2007, 129 municipal and county governments have adopted some form of a ban on plastic bags. The fact that several of the endorsements below have come from individuals in jurisdictions that have not yet considered a plastic bag ban suggest strong support across the state from voters and local government leaders alike.

See below for a complete list of endorsements:
