According to Craig Mauger, Meijer was one of several entities that donated to the Senate Republican Campaign Committee on the day a Senate panel began considering whether to block local plastic bag regulation.

The first line of a release from the Michigan Campaign Finance Network reads:

"The same day a Senate panel began considering whether to block local efforts to curb the use of plastic bags, the Senate Republican Campaign Committee reported receiving a $20,000 contribution from the political action committee of one of Michigan's largest retailers."

According to MCFN executive director Craig Mauger, that retailer is Meijer. 

Mauger sat down with us today to talk about that contribution and the role of money in politics.
