No-Bag-Tax Petition

SEN. Andrew J. Lanza

May 13, 2016

Im pleased to report that my colleagues and I in the Senate recently passed my bill (S.7336) to protect New Yorkers from the City Council’s absurd move to impose a tax on every disposable shopping bag used to carry out groceries and other merchandise from retailers. The last thing we need is another regressive tax that places more financial burdens on Staten Island families.
