New York considers bottled water deposits

New York Govenor Spitzer’s Budget Counts on Expanded Bottle Charges:

New Yorkers may have to start paying nickel deposits on bottled water and iced tea as well as beer and soda. The governor’s plan calls for expanding the “bottle bill” to include non-carbonated beverages. It currently applies only to carbonated beverages such as soda and beer. The state Assembly passed an expanded bottle bill, but Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno continues to oppose it.
