Plastic Bag Tax Public Hearing on September 14th – On September 14th at 4:30 p.m. the Board will hold a public hearing on a 5-cent plastic bag tax for grocery stores, convenience stores, and drugstores to go into effect as early as January 2022. This is the wrong time for any new tax, especially one that will disproportionately impact lower-income households and small businesses. It will not solve the real environmental issue we have with plastic bags, which is litter. 

Below I’ll share some reasons this tax is bad news for Fairfax County and how you can testify at the public hearing. In addition, I’ll share what I’m doing to solve the litter problem while actually saving taxpayers’ money and how you can help.
