Bag Bill Comes Back To County Council

Skip bag, Save the riverPrince George’s County Council is considering to vote on the disposable bag fee in their upcoming legislative session.

The bill will allow retailers in the County to charge consumers 5 cents a bag (plastic or paper) as part of their retail sales.

The bill failed 3 times in the past, but Council Woman Mary Lehamn (Dist 1), who is sponsoring the bill,  thinks, the bill may have a better luck this year, as the support for the bill has grown. College Park City Council also supported the bill last year.

The Montgomery County and the D.C. allow their retailers similar fees.
