It is only February, but for state legislatures the race is already on to complete their work before the 2017 session ends.
mid-February, Florida and Louisiana will be the only two states that haven't
started their regular sessions (though Louisiana convened a special budget
session on February 13), and by the time Louisiana starts its regular session
on April 10, 13 states will already have adjourned. Over 200 bills are already
being tracked in ISRI's State
Legislative Tracking System with more arriving every day. We've provided a
list of Current
State Plastics Legislation but if you'd like more information on a
particular bill, pointers on the system, or details on any of ISRI's other
advocacy resources, please contact Danielle
Waterfield or Justin Short.
