Attention Shoppers: Bring Our Cart Back

February is National Return Shopping Carts to the Supermarket Month, and an Oregon lawmaker is calling for a 24-hour, toll-free number for residents to report abandoned carts. Grocers would have 72 hours to retrieve their wayward carts or face a fine.

Robert Siegel talks with Laurie Monnes Anderson, the Oregon state senator who is sponsoring legislation to help her state's grocers reclaim their missing shopping carts.
