The Minneapolis City Council plans to move foreword with efforts that would amend the Bring Your Own Bag ordinance the city adopted in 2016 and require residents to pay a five-cent fee on paper and plastic bags. Minneapolis passed an ordinance in 2016 banning single use plastic bags, but the statewide preemption law passed in the same year nullified that attempt. To comply with Minnesota’s preemption, City Councilman Gordon plans to propose an ordinance requiring retailers to charge a five-cent fee on paper and plastic bags, rather than the fee being charged by the city. The draft language is not yet available.
