Lefty California is leaking into the right-controlled House:

The House late Thursday voted to ban the use of plastic drinking straws from its cafeterias, in an effort to raise awareness about the environmental damage straws can create when thrown away.
So in addition to companies like Starbucks and McDonald's working towards removing straws, we now have this...
WeWork, which the Motley Fool named as one of the top five most valuable startups, told employees this week that the company will ban employees from expensing meals that contain red meat, pork or poultry.

The company won't provide meat for events at its 400 locations, either — part of an effort to reduce its environmental footprint.
"New research indicates that avoiding meat is one of the biggest things an individual can do to reduce their personal environmental impact, even more than switching to a hybrid car," WeWork co-founder Miguel McKelvey said in an email to staffers.
The no-meat policy will also affect self-serve food kiosks at many of WeWork's 400 locations worldwide, according to Bloomberg. Employees wanting "medical or religious" exceptions can hash those out with a company policy team.
I wonder what a medical or religious exception would sound like.
