Lawmakers intended to reduce floating debris and pollution from abandoned foam coolers in the state's waterways.
Unfortunately, since our lawmakers rarely, if ever, actually know what they are talking about, they banned the wrong thing.
What I really can't understand about this whole embarrassing situation is WHY, if they figured it out before the law took effect didn't they put the brakes on passage and fix the damn bill. WTH? Why would they go ahead and pass a law banning Tupperware, while continuing to allow polystyrene containers?
But they confused their plastics, and instead of banning Styrofoam, they criminalized the plastic containers found in many kitchens but seldom used to ferry beer and soda down a river.
Another example of fine law making at your service.
