TRENTON, N.J. – New Jersey is only four months into the official ban of single-use plastic bags, and the negative consequences are already so apparent that even Democrats who authored the law have had to admit it isn’t working. Assembly Republicans take a look at whether the bag ban is eco-friendly or an eco-foe in their latest episode of “<Three.”
Steven Szemple, a legislative analyst at the Assembly Republican Office in Trenton, compares the law’s intended environmental benefits to the proliferation of nonrecyclable bags in the state. He asks, “Do you think the plastic bag ban has been a success so far or is it garbage?”
