The state Senate on Wednesday killed a House bill restricting the use of plastic straws, and amended a House bill restricting single-use plastic bags to be something else entirely.
The Senate votes nullify two bills aimed at reducing municipal waste that passed the House largely along partisan lines, with Republicans opposed.
HB 558, which would require food-service businesses to provide a single-use plastic straw only when requested by the customer, came out of the Senate Commerce Committee with a 4-1 recommendation against passage.
