Proposed grocery bag tax in Maryland meets opposition

March 22nd, 2011

Prince Georges County in Maryland could become the next large urban region to adopt a tax on grocery bags, pushing consumers to adopt reusable totes by levying a 5 cents per bag tax on disposables.

This green measure has support among people wanting to de-litter the landscape and move to more responsible use of nature resources.

Still, the measure could go the way of a similar recent effort in California in which a bag ban proposed by a Santa Monica legislator failed to win approval in the state Senate.
