Tax on grocery bags

The DC City Council is considering a 5¢ tax on EVERY grocery bag. They need the money to clean up the Anacostia River.

I understand the money has to come from somewhere, I just don’t understand why there is always money for the DC Nationals or other big buck projects, but never any money to meet basic needs.

Am I the only person reusing plastic trash bags for dog poop? Plastic bags don’t just get discarded, they are used for so many things, except for the ones that end up in the recycling bin at the grocery store.

Greater Greater Washington takes a different view
