BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Discussions are officially underway for new legislation that would ban plastic bags in Baltimore.

Councilman Bill Henry introduced the bill that would create a five-cent checkout bag surcharge for paper, compostable and other bags given out for delivery or carryout use.

The new push marks the ninth time supporters have tried to pass the measure in Baltimore.

Last month, the City Council passed a ban on plastic foam containers for carryout food and drinks- making Maryland the first state to ban foam food containers.
