Bottle Bill Funneled in IA State Legislature

March 7, 2008 at 2:21 pm Leave a comment

from the Iowa Independent article by Jay Wagner, “Legislature Winnows Bills During Funnel Week”:

“Lawmakers resurrected an expanded bottle bill, a top priority for Gov. Chet Culver, and advanced legislation requiring workers to show a state-issued identification card when applying for a job and students to stay in school through the age of 17.

Rep. Donavon Olson, D-Boone, the floor manager of a new bottle bill, said his proposed legislation, which is being endorsed by the governor, would keep the deposit on cans and bottles at five cents but would divert two cents to redemption centers and would expand the definition to include juice, water and tea containers.

Olson said the new bill would eliminate about 20 percent of roadside trash in the state and would make redemption centers more economically viable.”
