In an attempt to create awareness of environmental issues, Ian Calderon, Majority Leader of the California State Assembly, has proposed a bill that would give $1,000 fines and up to 6 months in jail for any waiters at sit-down restaurants who provided plastic straws to customers who haven’t requested them.

“We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans,” said Calderon in a press release last week. “AB 1884 is not ban on plastic straws. It is a small step towards curbing our reliance on these convenience products, which will hopefully contribute to a change in consumer attitudes and usage.”

Joe Walsh, former Congressman and now right-wing talk show host, tweeted about the news saying, “Just don’t give a plastic straw and misgender someone at the same time.”
