AUSTIN, Texas — More than six months after the Texas Supreme Court threw out plastic bag bans in Texas, Austin's leaders want to know if it's changed the way you shop.
In March of 2013, the City of Austin put a plastic bag ban in place to reduce plastic bag use in the area. On June 22, 2018, the Texas Supreme Court ruled that a Laredo ban on plastic bags violates state law.
Shortly after that decision, the City of Austin said it will no longer enforce its ban on plastic bags.
City leaders are now encouraging residents to fill out a survey about their plastic bag use. The city staff plan to use the results to find the best way to encourage retailers and customers to reduce their plastic bag use.
