Governor Andrew Cuomo plans to ban single-use plastic bags, though he previously blocked a 2017 plan to charge New York City shoppers 5-cents for paper and plastic bags at stores.
He introduced a bill Monday that would ban plastic carryout bags from any point of sale in the state. Garment bags, trash bags and bags used to wrap food such as fruit and sliced meats would be exempt from the bill. If passed, it would go into effect on New Year's Day of 2019.

Next we will hear that they will make exceptions for “poor people”, who cannot be expected to buy/bring their own bags, etc.
Mick and Keith are going to need to update the lyrics:
Friends are so alarming
And my lover’s never charming
Life’s just a cocktail party on the street
People dressed in plastic bags
Some kind of fashion
The voters should ban bags alright. Douchebags.
Limit plastic bags to 10 per box and a 21 day cooling off period
Add styrofoam cups and styrofoam fast food packaging.
In the '60's they were the party of anything goes.
If it feels good do it.
Now they are the party of "No".
banning bags is dumb, but what is alarming is how far left the prospective candidates for the 2020 nomination think they need to be in order to be viable.
So how are people going to pick up dog poop?
They also make biodegradable plastic bags, but I don't know how widespread their use is, how long it takes them to biodegrade, and whether this matters to Cuomo.
Sunny side eggs.
A Big Gulp 64 ounce drink.
A slice of pizza with no nutritional content declaration.
A medium rare fresh hamburger still bleeding.
All to go in a single use plastic bag.
"You dropped your phony dog poo?"
"What phony dog poo?"
Next maybe NY will ban illegal immigrants? We can only hope
The democrats will soon allow the stores to charge .10 cents a bag as they do in California then they will get a kickback from the stores to the democrat party.
This is going to cost businesses, because people will reduce their shopping, because they aren’t going to carry bags wherever they go or buy them.
So how do you get your dry cleaning?
Will silicone jugs be next?
Didn’t the use of plastic bags started to take off big time when enviroweenies whined about how we’d use up all the trees using paper bags?
Plastic packaging materials, can be made from biodegradable substances, like soy.
Plastics are not good for sea animals. Fish, mammals and fowl tied up with 6-pack holders, for example.
Conservatives in my Orange County town vote Republican, but also support keeping our environment in good condition. That means not dumping trash and pollutants into the ocean.
New Yawk should ban democrats from holding office.
That will fix 90% of their problems.
