Grocery Bills Might Go Even Higher
With grocery bills already climbing upward, it looks like some of us might have and extra $2.00 added to our tab under some proposed legislation. Not satisfied with forcing grocery stores to provide containers for used disposable plastic bags, there's a movement afoot in Sacramento to add a twenty five cent fee on all disposable shopping bags- paper or plastic.
The fee is capped at $2.00, at least for starters. Wonder how long that will last? We've seen with tobacco and liquor how a small tax ends up going up astronomically over time.
Astounding that at least some in Sacramento could care less how high grocery bills go. Goes to show the truth to that old saying that if you give someone an inch, they'll try and take a mile.
