How will they decide this Tuesday?

Legislators in Oregon will have a hearing on Tuesday to decide the fate of the plastic bag!  I am in favor of banning the bag and being charged 5 cents for using a recycled bag.  I have been using my own store bought bags for 2 years and have significantly reduced the amount of times I’ve had to use a plastic or paper bag.  Occasionally, I do forget to bring in my bags when I go shopping and kick myself for forgetting them!  With this 5 cent fee, I think I will force myself to bring in the bags!  5 cents add up!

Many of the naysayers believe banning the bags will result in the loss of jobs.  What are your thoughts?
