State legislature considers bill to eliminate plastic straws in restaurants

- Plastic straws at restaurants may go the way of the plastic shopping bag.

A bill just passed by the California Assembly would require dine-in restaurants to stop providing plastic straws unless a customer requests one.
    
It now goes to the state senate.
    
Assemblyman Ian Calderon is one of the co-sponsors.
    
He says plastic straws contribute to the buildup of trash in the oceans.
    
And he calls the bill a small step in trying to alleviate that problem.
    
But assemblyman matthew harper who opposed the bill, says it makes it harder for restaurants to do business in California
