The public will have a chance to weigh in on the fate of single-use plastic bags here in our state on Monday in Hartford.
There’s a bill which prohibits stores from providing or selling single-use plastic bags starting in 2020.
Another bill requires stores to charge customers at least 5 cents per bag.
Governor Ned Lamont says a billion plastic bags are used every year in the state, but the recycling rate is about 5 percent.
There’s also a bill that would ban single use food containers.
