The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will vote on whether to expand the city's ban on plastic bags Tuesday. The new plan would ban the bags from all businesses -- not just large grocery stores and pharmacies -- and it would impose a surcharge on other bags.

Last month San Jose implemented one of the nation's strictest bans on plastic bags. How are communities accepting the new restrictions?

Guests:

David Lewis, executive director of Save the Bay

Stephen Joseph, counsel with the Save the Plastic Bag Coalition, a group of plastic bag manufacturers and reusable bag manufactures
