Albany Legislature on Plastic Bags

Several dozen spoke at an Albany County Legislative hearing in favor of proposals by Joanne Cunningham to enact a fee on paper bags (a county option under the new state plastic ban law) and to make plastic straws at food places only available upon request. We hear from NYPIRG General Counsel Russ Haven; Albany County Legislator Doug Bullock; and Sandy Steubing of PAUSE. By Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Radio Network.
