Having solved every other problem in the state of Colorado, this state legislator wants to ban restaurants from giving you plasticware and condiments with your takeout unless you ask for them.
I know EVERYONE has a drawer full of takeout utensils and soy sauce packets. My bill aims to reduce that. https://t.co/WJkdm16mpn

This is the summary of the bill from the text of the bill in the link in the above Tweet:
The bill specifies that, commencing January 1, 2023, a retail food establishment or third-party food delivery service (service) may provide a customer with single-use food serviceware or a single-use condiment that accompanies food ordered for delivery or carryout only if the customer requests single-use food serviceware or a single-use condiment or confirms that the customer wants single-use food serviceware or a single-use condiment when offered, with limited exceptions.
The bill also “encourages” bulk condiment dispensers in self serve areas.
So when you go to a Colorado Rockies baseball game you will have to use the mustard and relish pump that everyone else has touched and touched their hot dog to and has the dried mustard stalactite hanging from the tip of the nozzle.
This person is unhappy that he has a drawer full of takeout plasticware and condiments and now wants to pass a law.
This person is from New York, moved to Colorado, and got elected.
Clearly New Yorkers are neurotic meddlesome tyrants. The trick is not letting them get a foothold in your state, and definitely don’t elect them to office.
