Bag fee bagged by Vt. lawmakers

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

A plan to require Vermont shoppers to pay a fee for bags has been bagged.

The idea was for retailers to charge a 10-cent fee for paper or plastic bags.

The revenue would have gone toward implementing the state's universal recycling efforts.

But after hearing from retailers earlier in the session, a Senate committee decided Tuesday to take no further action on the measure.
