The municipalities must adapt their regulations before the end of the year to begin the ban from the first day of 2019.
Before the end of this Legislature, the State Congress intends to approve the bill to prohibit the use of straw, plastic bags and even unicel throughout Jalisco, in order to stop the environmental damage caused by these products, especially to the marine fauna.
With this measure, the municipalities must adapt their regulations before the end of the year to begin the ban from the first day of 2019, informed the deputy of Citizen Movement Verónica Jiménez.
“What we are proposing is that the warnings, the regulation, come into force as of January 1, 2019, throughout the year to be aware, conscientious, socialize, and on January 1, 2020 will begin to be fined” .
The proposal arose from the initiative presented in Puerto Vallarta by the councilor Juan José Cuevas, based on the observations he had made about the indiscriminate consumption of straws in that tourist center.
