A bill has been introduced in California that would ban restaurants, grocery stores and other vendors from packaging food in non-biodegradable Styrofoam containers beginning in 2016. The bill was introduced by Democratic state Senator Alan Lowenthal in an effort to reduce litter from take-out food. Though many California cities have similar bans on the non-biodegradable containers, if passed into law this bill would be the first state-wide measure against Styrofoam in the U.S.

Prior to that, the lawmakers wanted to:

Ban hotel flat sheets

Ban shark fins

Ban cellphone use while bicycling

Ban initiatives from primaries

(Go to Google News and search with keywords "California ban bills"

The California legislature are trigger happy about banning, especially when there are other important matters like the economy and jobs.

I'm actually ok with all of that. I don't care if there are "more important matters", there are lot's of little "matters" that need atteding to as well. And I don't look at these as "bans" as much as "this is how we do things here". For example, in CA you can still use disposable diapers...no so in some other states ehh? This isn't a CA thing, all states do it.

With the exception of the banning of hotel flat sheets, I'm OK with these other bans but I disagree about the priority of where the CA legislature should be focusing on.

Nobody has the luxury to ignore everything and only focus the economy.Most people have no power to change the economy anyway but they can do other things...their jobs.

The flat sheet issue I'm going to leave up to the people who change the sheets. It not something the public needs to worry about, it's a work related thing.

Whats wrong with flat sheets ? We also know ca is a over-lawed, over-regulated nanny governed state. When the state legislature has a low approval rating of around 14% what do you expect ?

I'm not stating that everything else besides the economy and jobs should be ignored. I'm stating that in my opinion, there should be a much higher priority on helping make the business climate a little more favorable in California.
