Sponsored by the Public Interest Research Group the initiative will place a 5¢ deposit on all beverage containers; currently the deposit applies only to carbonated beverages and beer bottles.

Opponents led by local retailers and the Grocery Manufacturers of America are organizing a campaign to defeat the initiative.
