“I am outraged after listening to the City of Santa Cruz’s press conference regarding the February 13th arrests.

SACRAMENTO – Today, Assemblymember Mark Stone (D-Monterey Bay) introduced AB 319, legislation that will require that, by 2020, all single-use plastic beverage containers have a cap that is tethered to the container. According to the Coastal Conservancy’s most recent data on marine debris, bottle caps were one of the top items found in beach clean-ups conducted in 2015. The size of these plastics makes them a threat to wildlife, and as they break down to smaller pieces, they are found to have an even greater environmental impact.
