Suffolk Pols OK 5-cent Shopping Bag Fee

Suffolk County lawmakers approved a 5-cent fee on single-use paper and plastic bags in a measure intended to encourage the use of reusable bags when shoppers make purchases at local stores. Legislators passed the bill Wednesday by a vote of 13-4 and Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone signaled his intent to sign the bill into law. Retailers that fail to collect the nickel would be subject to a $500 fine, once the law goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2018.
