Bag tax

After pushback from Albany, City Council Members voted to delay plastic bag fees until February 2017.
State lawmakers have counteracted City plans to enact a 5-cent plastic bag fee.
The fee will be officially instated in October, but won't be actively enforced until next April.
The Council will vote on the bill on May 5th.
Mayor de Blasio's administration is reportedly "looking very closely" at a 10-cent fee.
The bill has 19 sponsors from a more progressive Council.
