Cuomo To Include Plastic Bag Ban Proposal In Budget

NEW YORK – Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday said his upcoming executive budget would include a proposal to ban single-use plastic bags in New York state.

Cuomo said his budget, which he is scheduled to release Tuesday, would also include a proposal to make most non-alcoholic bottles eligible for a 5-cent redemption.

Cuomo, a Democrat, called the bag ban a “bold action” that would “create a cleaner and greener New York for all.”
