Just talked to Wasserman. The mayor is going to support a plastic grocery bag ban. Since I’ve never seen a 3-2 vote with Wasserman and Wieckowski as the dissenters, I think it’s pretty safe to say the council is going to move forward with this thing.
Wasserman said last time when the council punted on plastic bags, it was hoping the supermarkets would take action themselves or some new alternative would arise. But that hasn’t happened. “We just need to say ‘do it,’ and then it will force the changes to come,” the mayor said.
