Statement by Linda M. Doherty President of the New Jersey Food Council on the Absolute Veto by Governor Phil Murphy on the Single Use Bag Fee Legislation

Trenton- “We believe the proposed fee on single use bags was the most impactful solution to reducing both paper and plastic bags in our solid waste stream and a giant first step towards a plastic bag ban. We remain committed to working with the Administration, legislative leaders and stakeholders on a statewide policy and stand ready to rollup our sleeves and develop a viable bag program for NJ in the coming months.”
