Ten cents is fine, but the deposit should be extended to all beverages, not just carbonated ones. There is plenty of litter out there from sports drinks, teas, bottled water, etc.

How much money is being paid under the table to the members of the House and Senate by the retailers. Follow the money - they want it passed and they are attempting to buy it. wake up and smell the roses.

The state should increase deposit to 20 cents.
