Elorza Vetoes Bag Ordinance

(Providence, RI)  --  Providence Mayor Elorza says an ordinance approved by city council that would ban single-use plastic bags needs more community input.  The mayor vetoed the measure yesterday, saying he wants to avoid putting a burden on low-income residents.  The ordinance would fine retailers using single-use plastic bags.  Council can override Elorza's veto with ten of 15 council members.
