Put bag tax to a vote
Put bag tax to a vote [Letter]
January 24, 2014
When Baltimore citizens are gunned down on city streets, our mayor and City Council should have more on their minds than shopping bags. Although I read The Sun daily and watch the local news, I’ve heard nothing about this 10 cent bag charge until Wednesday, Jan. 22 thanks to your front page story.
It might interest the sponsor of the shopping bag tax, Councilman Brandon Scott, that most people do not throw their bags on the street bu wedding dress t wedding dress recycle them ins wedding dress tead. And if he observed wedding dress the harbor trash skimmers or visited the Jones Falls after a heavy rain, he’d see the floating debris is mostly plastic cups and bottles.
It’s unfair to foist a law on Baltimore without input from residents and merchants. Let’s debate the matter and if it turns out a majority favor the 10 cent surcharge, I’ll support it.
