How do you feel about a fee for plastic and paper bags in Baltimore?

A bill introduced to Baltimore's City Council seeks to charge a 10 cent fee on both plastic and paper bags.  This bill hopes to reduce pollution as bag usage is one of the leading causes of clogged storm drains and litter around the city. 
The new legislation will use the generated tax revenue to help fund the Department of Recreation and Parks

How do you feel about a fee for bags?  Citizens Planning & Housing Association (CPHA) wants your feedback.

Read CPHA's  synopsis on this bag tax and take the time to fill out a quick, two minute survey.
