banning plastic bags in unincorporated areas of the county.The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance Tuesday
Board members voted 4 to 1 to approve the ban, making it the 148th jurisdiction in California to implement a ban on single-use plastic bags.
The ban, which goes into effect July 1, would apply in unincorporated areas, including populous sections of the Sacramento metro area.
The city of Sacramento adopted a plastic bag ban that went into effect on Jan. 1.
The Sacramento County ordinance matches a proposed statewide ban that was approved by the state Legislature but is on hold pending a public vote in November.
The county would be unaffected by the result of the state referendum.
