Bag surcharge bill to DC Council

Twelve of the thirteen members of the District of Columbia Council have introduced the Anacostia River Cleanup and Protection Act which includes a five-cent fee on disposable grocery bags, plastic or paper.

Would be nice if it included other retailers — especially restaurants — but this probably gets the biggest number of bags off the streets and out of the environment.

Story at Greater Greater Washington.
