The Texas Supreme Court will have to decide if local disposable bag bans are legal under current Texas law. The court heard arguments from Attorney Dale Wainwright who called Laredo's ordinance a reasonable response to a huge problem.
A lawyer for the Laredo merchants argued against the bag ban saying it was in direct conflict of state waste management laws.
