Pa. Bottle Bill dilemma -
job loss fear vs. ag problem
HARRISBURG - The lines of
the proposed mandatory deposit
bottle bill issue were clearly drawn
at the opening of committee
hearings Thursday at the Capitol.
And this bottle bill issue presents
something of a no-win dilemma,
according to legislators con
sidering it.
The issue centers on the fear of
job losses principally in the glass
industry versus an ag problem that
includes equipment damage,
downtime and livestock losses.
And from comments and
questions of the legislators at
Thursday’s opening session of
Glass workers came ap

hearings, their apparent dominant
position might be described as:
Sincere sympathy lies with
farmers and there’s a realization
that something must be done about
litter, but in view of the possible
losses of glass industry jobs
primarily in Western Penn
sylvania, the weight of decision is
tipped against the bottle bill.
Thursday’s session, which ran
much later than the agenda
schedule, featured container in

against the proposed bill and ag,
