Michigan bottle deposit could be expanded

LANSING (WKZO) -- A new effort is underway at the state Capitol to expand Michigan's bottle deposit law to include water bottles and other beverages.  Michigan residents have been paying a dime on every can and bottle of beer, pop and wine coolers for decades.

State Senator Rebekah Warren of Ann Arbor is sponsoring the latest attempt to expand the deposit law.  Every time it's come up in the past, the bottled beverage industry's lobbyists have managed to kill it.
