Emboldened by the success of California’s anti-global warming initiative, environmentalists are now eyeing other green bills that they believe can help save the planet.

More than 20 high-priority bills are on their way to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s desk, including one on flex-fuel cars and another that would mandate cleaner power plants. There are less publicized bills such as one that would require most grocery stores to offer plastic bag recycling, and another that would reduce the amount of water used in every toilet flush.

However stringent or unusual, each will test the Republican governor’s environmental resolve, advocates say.
