Delaware lawmakers are considering a bill that would cost plastic bag users more at the grocery store.  If the bill is passed, stores will be required to charge 5 cents for every single-use carryout bag provided to customers.   Stores will be authorized to use the fees that are collected to promote the use and distribution of reusable bags. Penalties will be imposed for violating the requirements of this program. According to the text of the legislation, its purpose is to clean up our communities and watersheds, reduce storm water and trash management costs to taxpayers, and promote the health and safety of watersheds and wildlife. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Deborah Hudson, is still in a legislative committee. If it makes it to the floor and passes, it would not take effect until December 2nd.
