OMG ! You can NOT tell me we don't already PAY for these bags in the HIGH cost off EVERYTHING we purchase now! GET OUT OF HERE with this BULL SHIT !
10 cents per bag over the course of a year is a lot of money ! Are we going to pay SALES TAX on the stupid bags too?
Don't you stupid politicians have anything else to divert your attention too that would better serve the people WHO PAY your salary?
This state has gone to HELL in a hand bag now!

You're right! They should eat the bird with their obnoxious taxes. Although I doubt that is what they want. They want to eliminate plastic bags. We could carry string bags or other carriers and that would be that. Except, it would be unsanitary. And furthermore, the cause is so damn dated. In the 80's I would have been for it.
But since then we learned the amount of oil it takes to make a plastic bag is small. Especially compared with our overal use of oil. Secondly, having endured at least a decade of wondering "paper or plastic?" plenty of us found good reuse of the bags. I use them as kitchen size trash bags. Where I live they are also banning grocery bags--but you can buy them?
So now I will have to go out and buy kitchen trash bags in addition.
