New York State lawmakers agreed to a ban on single-use plastic bags Sunday, making the Empire State the second in the nation to do so.
The decision was part of a $175.5 billion budget agreement that included other progressive measures including the elimination of cash bail for most misdemeanors and non-violent crimes, three-hours-off on election day for voting and the nation’s first-ever congestion pricing program in the busiest part of Manhattan. The budget was expected to be passed in a series of bills during a session Sunday that could carry into Monday, the Associated Press reported.
“I am proud to announce that together, we got it done,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said of the budget, according to the Associated Press.

Plastic Bags to Be Banned in New York; Second Statewide Ban, After California

State lawmakers and Gov. Andrew Cuomo have agreed to ban most single-use plastic bags; counties will have the option to impose a 5-cent paper-bag fee.

The plastic bag ban will go into effect March 1, 2020. Counties and cities will have the option to charge customers five cents for paper bags. Two cents would then go to a fund to help low-income customers buy reusable bags and three cents would go to the state’s Environmental Protection Fund.
In passing the ban, New York follows California, which was the first state in the nation to ban plastic bags in 2016. In Hawaii, they are also effectively banned since every county in the state prohibits them.
“I think we’ll look back in a few years and people will wonder why we didn’t do this sooner,” Democratic Nassau County State Senator Todd Kaminsky, who sponsored the bill and chairs the environmental conservation committee, told The New York Times.

The ban comes after several failed attempts to manage plastic bags in New York. In 2017, Cuomo signed a bill that blocked a New York City plan to charge five cents for plastic bags. Last year, a similar, state-wide ban was blocked by Republicans in the state Senate. But Democrats picked up eight Senate seats during the 2018 midterm elections, gaining a majority and making the ban possible.
“I’m looking forward to it. I’ve been waiting for it for a long time. I’m tired of having to recycle them,” Midtown resident Louise Sharakan told CBS2 of the upcoming ban.
However, not all New Yorkers are pleased, as this interview shows:
“I hate it. I use them all the time, believe it or not, in my apartment. I don’t have a space for garbage. I hang them by the door and I use them for garbage,” said Midtown resident Glen Wiehl.
“So what are you going to do?” CBS2’s Marcia Kramer asked.
“I’m stocking up now,” he said.
The most controversial part of the ban has proved to be the optional paper bag fee. Some environmentalists think it should not be optional, since it could result in shoppers simply using paper bags instead of purchasing reusable bags.
“New York had a chance to show real leadership and came up short,” Environmental Advocates of New York Executive Director Peter Iwanowicz told The New York Times.

New York’s plastic bag ban to go into effect in March 2020

ALBANY — You’ve got about a year to stock up. New York state’s plastic bag ban won’t be taking effect until March 1, 2020. A deal on the ban came together Thursday afternoon, but

Business groups, who were critical of the ban in general, thought some of the fee should have been directed back to the stores to help with implementation costs.
“The failure to give even a portion of the 5-cent fee back to the stores, makes this an untenable mandate for many of our members who operate within finite profit margins,” Food Industry Alliance of New York State President Mike Durant told The New York Times. “We are disappointed that the Legislature did not consider this alternative and failed to hear the concerns of the business community.”
The ban includes exceptions for takeout, dry cleaning, bulk and deli items, newspapers and bags like garbage bags bought in bulk.
