Ordinance
Bill 1597
Notes
The attempt to pass a bag fee in separate language or as part of the ongoing budget discussions has been defeated for the spring legislative session. Fear of a preemption of the Chicago bag ordinance led city leaders in Chicago and environmental groups to ultimately block the statewide fee on paper bags. The House also took a bipartisan stance against all “consumer taxes” in the state budget. Senator Link will continue to press for a bag bill despite the defeat for 2019 and summer discussions are likely.
