New York State's Ban On Plastic Bags Begins

New York will be the second state to outright ban disposable plastic shopping bags.

A ban on plastic bags in New York State will go in effect overnight.

In some localities, including New York city, an additional tax will be levied on paper bags.

The ban will eventually involve fines on businesses as high as $500.

However, the state now says it won't issue any until April.

According to Business Insider, California enacted the strictest ban on the single-use bags in 2016.
