NY State Started the Process to Overrule NYC Plastic Bag Fee

June 10, from the SpecialtyFood.com and Crains:
"New York State’s Senate has voted to forbid New York City’s five-cent fee for disposable plastic bags."
"The plastic bag fee was signed into law by Mayor Bill de Blasio in May as part of an effort to reduce plastic waste. The state responded by approving a bill 36-22 that prohibits taxes, fees and local charges on carryout bags of any kind throughout New York state."
"The measure would still need to pass the Assembly—a possibility that Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie has not ruled out—and be signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to become law."
