New regulations on D.C. bag law
The D.C. Wire is reporting that the D.C. Department of the Environment published new regulations Friday clarifying which retail stores have to charge the 5-cent tax on plastic bags, and how the city would enforce the new law.
The proposed regulations, which become law following a 30-day public comment period, say the tax applies to bakeries, delicatessens, grocery stores, convenience stores that sell food, restaurants, street vendors that sell food, liquor stores as well as "any business that sells food items."
But the new regulations, published in the D.C. Register, say the tax will generally not apply to bags used to package goods inside food stores.
