A petition is being circulated in the city of Seattle to fight the recently passed plastic bag ban.
Seattle's plastic bag ban was passed during the Christmas holiday season.
According to the website, Save Our Choice.us, the petition is to "repeal Seattle City Council's Ban of Plastic Bags and Tax on Paper Bags". The website states that if enough voters sign the petition, the law will be on the voting ballot of 2012. The deadline to secure the voter signatures is January 14th. A petition can be downloaded from the site.
Merchants are being asked to have petitions in their business available for voters to sign. As of this writing, there was only one merchant listed as having the petitions available. With only four days left, there is much work to be done.
Here is a report from King 5 News in Seattle.
