    The Joint BPW/City Council committee took up the issue of the "purple bags" at its March 2010 meeting. The Springfield Republican, a daily newspaper, distributes an advertising supplement called "Extra," which is clad in a purple plastic bag. Contractors throw them from cars at peoples' houses.
