New York will hold off on fining plastic bag violators until April

New York State is hitting pause.

The Associated Press reports that they will not come down on stores that continue to use single-use plastic bags until April.

That’s when fines will be assessed to retailers that violate New York’s new plastic bag ban.

The stoppage is due to a lawsuit being brought by convenience store owners and bag manufacturers.

Violators of the new law will be warned first, then fined $250 for the second violation, then hit with a $500 fine for all others.
