Mass. Bottle Bill Expansion Up Off the Canvas!
Thanks to the Massachusetts State Senate's recent approval of a bill which includes a provision for expanding the state's 30 year old bottle redemption program, it's now up to a 6-member legislative committee and Governor Deval Patrick to finally remedy this discrepancy. Of course Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo will, most likely, play a role in the bill's fate. I'm hoping he'll take a walk around his neighborhood and look into the nooks and crannies, rivers and streams, curbs and shrubbery, before deciding whether to aim his powerful thumb up or down.
