Telfer Wanted the Bottle Bill to be Much More


Oregon lawmakers recently approved a new bottle bill that will greatly expand the state's recycling program. But State Senator Chris Telfer wants to expand on the legislation. The bill covers nearly all beverage containers, except those that hold wine, liquor or milk. State Senator Chris Telfer did not support the bill, but plans to offer guidance on what to do with unclaimed deposit money. “So I'm going to be writing legislation between now and February about the nickels and soon dimes that are unclaimed, will soon go to the schools.” Senator Telfer says she's already receiving positive feedback about the plan from fellow lawmakers.
