The Texas Supreme Court is set to hear arguments Thursday (Jan. 11) over a ban on plastic bags in Laredo. The case could pose a danger to such bans in several cities across the state. Houston, however, doesn't have such a ban in place. Why?
Matthew Festa from South Texas College of Law Houston and Robin Schneider from Texas Campaign for the Environment join Houston Matters to consider our city's history of trying to ban plastic bags and why those efforts have failed.
