HUNTINGTON BEACH  (AP) — A single vote was cast in favor of keeping the plastic bag ban that’s been in place in

Councilman Mike Posey ran for office in order to repeal the ban, a platform that was supported by five other council members Monday night.

It’ll take at least 30 days for the ordinance to have a second reading and go into effect, ending grocers’ ability to charge 10 cents per paper bag.

Voters statewide will decide whether to ban plastic bags through a November 2016 ballot initiative.
