Call Attorney General Mark Brnovich: tell him the state shouldn't interfere with Bisbee's ordinance banning plastic bags

I just read Arizona attorney general gives Bisbee 30 days to rescind plastic-bag law

PHOENIX — Saying state law trumps local control, Attorney General Mark Brnovich ruled Tuesday that a Bisbee ordinance banning plastic bags is illegal. -- TUCSON.COM (

Yumi from Tucson Revolution on facebook challenged me : State law trumps local control?! Illegal to ban plastic bags?! Frustrated?  Let our voice be heard. Call Mark Brnovich's office (602) 542-5025. VOTE OUT Attorney General BRNOVICH. #BrnovichBeholdenToKochsOil (Plastics are made from oil.) #BackwardsAZ

This makes me crazy. Actually, there was a whole pipeline built to deliver oil to Canada to make one use plastic to be sent back to the US!  I accepted Yumi's challenge and called Attorney General's office (I pressed 0 and the receptionist connected me to his office.) I told his secretary that I was appalled by this law, that it was going the wrong direction. That it was bad for tourism to have all those plastic bags lining our streets.
