Mass. lawmakers considering plastic straw regulation


BOSTON (NEWS10) — A new proposal would regulate plastic straws from being provided at restaurants in Massachusetts unless you specifically ask for one.

Mass. State Rep. David Rogers filed the bill to cut down on the amount of single use plastic in the state. Rogers said he made sure the bill was not an all out ban by stating some health conditions require them.

Lawmakers hope the plastic straw restriction will reduce the state’s carbon footprint.
