Governor Cuomo wants single use plastic bags to be banned in New York State.
The ban would apply to single use, plastic carryout bags at any point of sale but exempts garment bags, trash bags and any bags used to wrap or contain certain foods, such as fruits and sliced meats.
According to a report from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation about a dozen cities, towns and villages in the state have already enacted versions of bans on plastic bags.
