Baltimore County Council kills bill amending forthcoming plastic bag ban

September 8, 2023

The Baltimore County Council voted against a bill that advocates said would have watered down a forthcoming law banning the sale of plastic bags. On Tuesday evening, the Baltimore County Council voted 6-1 to table a bill that would have amended the “Bring Your Own Bag Act,” which passed in February and is set to take effect in November, to allow exceptions for liquor stores and food service facilities to sell customers plastic bags.
