Indiana Rep. David Wolkins made a strange suggestion recently.
A friend of Wolkins who works in a landfill reportedly told the representative that the majority of waste that he sees in his line of work is tossed-out newspapers. Deciding that this was a problem that he could propose a fix to, Wolkins introduced legislation in House Bill 1355 that would tax newspapers for the newsprint they use.
By doing this, he believes newspapers will use a greater amount of recycled content, which would reduce the number of old papers lying around in landfills.
