State Rep. Drew Springer Has Filed a Bill to Void Bag Bans

Drew Springer has filed a bill that would void plastic bag bans across Texas.

The Republican State Representative from rural North Texas says that the bans are to “push forward a misguided nanny-state agenda”.

According to Springer, the ban creates a “hidden social tax” by requiring shoppers to buy the much more expensive ‘reusable’ bags that advocates of the ban encourage.

Austin’s plastic bag ban began March 1.

Those pushing the so called, by Springer and others, ‘nanny state’ style bans argue that the bill would remove the ability of local governments to decide.

Springer discussed his bill with Robert Pratt on Pratt on Texas on KFYO.
