Hearing on Tennessee Bottle Bill will be April 19
The latest on the proposed Tennessee Bottle Bill.
On Wednesday, April 19, from 9 to 10 am in House Hearing Room 30, the 2006 bottle bill will be the subject of a one-hour hearing before the Local Government Subcommittee of the House State and Local Government Committee. Rep. Russell Johnson will have 20 minutes to make the case for a bottle bill; the opposition will have 20 minutes to explain why they think a bottle bill will be a bad idea; and the legislators will have 20 minutes to ask questions.
Marge Davis, executive director of the Tennessee Bottle Bill Project, is looking for supporters of the bottle bill to come out to the Hearing to show support for this legislation. Check out the Tennessee Bottle Bill Project website for more information.
Dr. Davis believes that if the legislation can make it out of this committee it has a good chance of passing.
