The Baltimore County Council passed amendments to a ban on the sale of plastic bags that is slated to go into effect in two weeks. County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. said he will veto the three carveouts. In February, the council voted to ban retailers from offering free plastic bags at the point of sale and to require a minimum-5-cent charge for provided reusable and paper bags under the Bring Your Own Bag Act, which will go into effect November 1.
