PETITION FILED

The following petition was received and placed on file:

By Weidman of Cass from three thousand eight hundred thirty-six
constituents that believe the current Iowa container deposit law
endangers our food supply by directing consumers to take unsanitary
beverage containers to supermarkets. They further believe the
current deposit law hurts comprehensive recycling and curbside
collection efforts by establishing a separate system for recycling of
valuable aluminum. They request that the Iowa General Assembly
replace the current Iowa deposit law with one that encourages
comprehensive recycling.
