California Moves to Reduce Plastic Straws

California could become the first state to to restrict the distribution of plastic straws at restaurants under a bill approved Thursday by lawmakers. Despite many breathless headlines, the legislation doesn’t ban straws outright, but would prohibit full-service, dine-in restaurants from automatically giving them to customers – they could if requested.

The bill passed 45-20 in the state Assembly and now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature.
