Description:First it was the Mayor’s smoking ban, then a proposed ban on large sugary drinks, and Styrofoam. Now a group of City Council members is taking aim at plastic bags and it could cost you.
They want grocery and retail stores to charge customers 10 cents for each plastic bag they use. They say the goal is to cut down on the 100,000 tons of plastic bags the city pays $10 million a year to put into landfills and to clean up the city.(2:03)
