Game Day to Rain Day: Cute Plastic Purse Options for the Texas Clear Bag Policy
The start of a new football season + the beginning of fall gives us two BIG reasons to look for clear plastic handbags and purses. Austin’s Clear Bag Policy has already come into effect and applies to both University of Texas football games and all Austin Independent School District athletic games as well.
According to The Daily Texan: “Many universities across the country already have clear bag policies, including Big 12 Conference members Kansas, K-State, and Texas Tech. The SEC implemented this policy conference-wide in 2017. The NFL has had the same policy in place since 2013.”
New regulation approved bags include:
• Bags that are clear plastic and do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12".
• One-gallon clear resealable plastic storage bags.
• Small clutch bags or purses do not have to be clear but cannot exceed 4.5" x 6.5".
