On January 1, 2018, a new Suffolk County law will go into effect, charging a five-cent fee for plastic and paper carryout bags, at a variety of retail stores. Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment. Those against view it as a tax that will hurt local businesses. Would you support Nassau County imposing a five-cent fee on plastic and paper carryout bags?

Regardless of you political leanings or affiliations, Nassau County has lost a man who fought for LI for many years. Regardless of a political party, I fully respect each of the legislators for they are passionate in what they beleive in and are willing to fight for what they believe is right.
