Oregon’s state Senate has passed a bill that will limit usage of plastic straws in the state.
The bill, if put into law, would prohibit single-use plastic straws at restaurants unless a customer asks for one. Drive-thrus would still be able to hand out plastic straws. The legislation now heads to the Oregon House, and then if passed, onto the Governor’s desk.
The state would become the second after California to enact measures limiting single-use plastic straws state-wide.
