The Oregon Senate Judiciary Committee heard testimony on a bill that would allow police to issue $90 tickets to people caught throwing cigarettes or cigars on public lands, whether they're burning or not. Sarah Fritch organized a "Butt Hunt" on Earth Day a couple years ago. She said 25,000 cigarette butts were picked up off streets in downtown Portland in one day. This kind of littering is already illegal but some argue police hesitate to enforce it because the penalty is too steep. Littering laws and laws that make it illegal to throw burning material from vehicles could still be enforced.
