County Executive Testifies To Implement Bag Fee In Prince George's County

County Executive Testifies To Implement Bag Fee In Prince George's County

Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III testified Tuesday in front of the Maryland General Assembly to allow Prince George's County the authorization necessary to implement a bag fee on all non-disposable bags. 

"Litter harms our environment and costs taxpayer dollars," said County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III on Tuesday via Twiter.  He went on to say, "Last year, we picked up 7,000 tons of trash, including plastic bags." 

The Maryland General Assembly meets in Annapolis each year for 90 days to act on over 2300 bills including the bag fee, and Maryland’s annual budget. By passing the HB 895 bill, Prince George's County will then be given the right to debate the issue in front of the County Council.
