HARTFORD -- The legislature is considering three measures to change the state’s four-decades-old “Bottle Bill” law. One would do away with the nickel deposit, and instead impose a four-cent “fee.” Another proposal by Gov. Malloy would double the deposit to ten cents. The third would pay more to bottle redemption centers.
