PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia’s attempt to crack down on plastic bags could be stopped before it even gets off the ground. State lawmakers are working on a bill to temporarily block any bans or taxes on bags.
They want to study the economic and environmental impact of those bans before any can be passed.
Just last week, a city councilman introduced a bill that would ban most single-use plastic bags. It would also charge people 15 cents to buy reusable bags.
