Blowing in the Wind

WITI-TV 6 News photo
The Wisconsin Assembly and Senate have passed a bill (AB730/SB601) prohibiting local communities from banning plastic grocery bags. Republicans passed the bills on party line votes: 63-35 in the Assembly and 19-13 in the Senate.

No Wisconsin communities have such bans, but it's yet another example of so-called "small-government Republicans" in Madison usurping the powers of citizens at the local level.
