Travis County Commissioners Court unanimously endorsed the so-called "Texas Bottle Bill" today, a statewide proposal that would introduce redeemable deposits on bottles and cans in Texas.
The proposal evoked fond memories of childhood among Commissioners.
"As a kid, it dawned on me that if I would go out and collect empty bottles, and just take them home and collect the deposit, that would be a little business!" mused County judge Sam Biscoe.
"We all did that!" interjected Commissioner Ron Davis, as other commissioners present murmured in agreement.
