A local lawmaker wants the state to stop selling bottled water in state parks.

Assemblymember Pat Fahy says a ban on plastic water bottles in parks will cut down on pollution.

She introduced the bill in the Assembly, with a companion bill in the State Senate.

If passed, single use plastic bottles would not be sold in state parks.

Fahy says it’s an extension of the principal of "leave no trace."

She hopes the bill will be debated and come up for a vote in the next legislative session.
