Kingman, AZ, a city 100 miles southeast of Las Vegas, recently postponed a decision on whether to impose a tax or outright ban on plastic bags.  The Kingman Clean City Commission decided to wait another year after the managers of several area grocery retailers explained their "Bag Central Station" education campaign to promote reusable bags and plastic bag recycling.  Click to read Tax on Bags Trashed for Now from the Kingman Daily Miner.

Frequent readers of Chamber Executive, ACCE's authoritative journal for and about chambers of commerce, may recall that the plastic bag ban issue was a featured example in Lisa Itamura's article Catching and Tracking Contagious Issues, the cover story for the Fall 2007 issue.
