Should Plastic Bags Be Banned in Austin?

This would be great for Austin Texas to either ban the bag or charge a fee for them. Charging a fee will drop the bag usage substantially in a few months so the end result is about the same. Plus amid a lot of hype about the problems and confusion the manufacturers would have us believe will occur,  after a couple of months most consumers would be happy the change was introduced. This is what happened in Italy with over 80% of people saying they were glad the bags had been banned after a year.   People quickly adopt to new practices of using reusable bags and get on with their life.  If they are not pressed however they would continue to do the same old thing which is using a lot of unnecessary plastic bags.  Inspite of what the article says, there is quite a lot of factual results available as to what happens after plastic bags are banned.
