LOS ANGELES , January 9, 2013 () – Government officals in Rhode Island are proceeding with a study that is looking to boost recycling for packaging materials, including plastic bags, The Associated Press reported Jan. 9.

The state's Senate has created a special commission to look at the topic, and the group is meeting Jan. 9 to hear presentations from members of the packaging, grocery, and waste industries, according to the report.
