You may soon be paying more to go to stores in Maine.
According to the Sun-Journal, the Maine House today (May 30) gave their approval for a ban on single-use plastic shopping bags.
Some local communities, including Portland, already have a ban.
If this bill becomes a law, customers will be charged at least a 5-cent fee for each bag they use. However, plastic bags that are at least 4 millimeters thick could still be used, because they are considered reusable.
The measure now heads to the Senate.
