[GreenYes] VA Governor Would Support Bottle Bill Legislation


FYI..since we're talking bottle bills...


On Wednesday, October 4, the Virginia-Pilot reported that Virginia
Governor Timothy M. Kaine (D)
announced during a guest lecture at Old Dominion University that he would
have no problem signing a
"bottle bill" requiring deposits on beverage containers. The article also
said the Governor did not
expect such a measure to happen any time soon, given that such measures
have failed to pass in the
legislature. A link to the article is below.

GMA will continue to monitor and work with in-state and national allies to
oppose implementation of a
beverage container deposit law in Virginia. If you have any questions,
please contact me at
kfisk@no.address or (202) 295-3935.
