Here's my statement on the failure to move debate forward on a bill to prevent student loan interest rates from doubling this July.
Just moments ago the LA City Council voted to ban single use plastic bags - listening to the voices of students and community members who support protecting the ocean and reducing plastic pollution.

PIRG In The News
CALPIRG held a press conference Wednesday morning to bring attention to their goal of banning plastic bags in the city of Berkeley, and eventually the whole state.
Berkeley City Council is set to consider an item at its Tuesday meeting that would “initiate a public process to inform residents and businesses” that the council is seriously considering adopting a ban on single-use plastic bags.
With Alameda County poised to adopt a single-use plastic bag ban soon, the Berkeley City Council decided at its meeting Tuesday night to officially inform the public that such a ban may be on its way in the city.
