Article about Tennessee Bottle Bill in Clarksville Paper

There is an article in the Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle today about the Tennessee Bottle Bill. The article has some great quotes from Rep. Johnson, who is pushing the bill. They interviewed a convenience store owner for the view from the other side and basically the owner said that it would not be very convenient to have to deal with all those bottles. The accounting, the public health... What ever happened to the CAN DO American attitude? Then he says that only 20% of roadside litter is beverage containers. The picture on the right side of the article clearly shows otherwise.

Nice article over all, but it would be nice if they would quote a Representative or Senator that is against the bill also. Does anyone have any information about which State Reps and Senators are against this bill?

Rep. Nathan Vaughn (D, Kingsport) is against the Tennessee Bottle --- Kingsport is also the home of Eastman Chemicals and related subsidaries that manufactures PET for beverage bottles.

Rep. Vaugh is a pretty sharp fellow on most issues...

Thanks for the information. I will give him a call.

Have you seen any quotes of his about the Bottle Bill?
