Bag Fees to Ballot

I received this from Regina yesterday. If you are a business that charges for bags were you aware of this? Are any associations speaking out on this.
What do you think?

Bag Fees to Ballot. California voters in November will not only decide whether to uphold the state’s plastic bag ban, but also whether to redirect fees on paper and reusable bags to environmental projects. The ballot measure would require stores to deposit their bag sale proceeds into a special fund administered by the Wildlife Conservation Board. It would mandate the board develop regulations to implement the law. If the referendum is successful in stopping the statewide ban on single-use bags, then the initiative would only impact bag fees in communities with local bans in place. More here
