Dem lawmakers want statewide ban on plastic bags
Two Democratic legislators want to make it a crime for Wisconsin stores to put things in plastic shopping bags.
Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Madison, and Sen. Bob Jauch, D-Poplar, introduced a bill Wednesday to only allow bags which are biodegradable.
The ban would take effect three years after it's signed by the governor.
San Francisco has passed such a ban and so did the Whole Foods chain.
