Eagle Pass, TX - The City of Eagle Pass will forcibly reverse their stand of prohibiting the issuance of plastic bags in stores in Eagle Pass. The ordinance has been in place for the last 18 months.
The Texas Supreme Court issued a ruling declaring the prohibition of plastic bags for stores in Texas as unconstitutional.
Cities such as Eagle Pass, Laredo among others throughout Texas must withdraw the ordinance effective immediately. Local and Franchise stores can now offer plastic bags to their customers without consequences.
Customers can continue on a voluntary basis taking their own re-usable environmental friendly bags to assist reducing pollution.
