Enforcement of N.Y. plastic bag ban pushed back to May 15 (nydailynews)

New York won’t enforce it’s recently enacted plastic bag ban for another two months, the state announced this week.

Amid an ongoing lawsuit, the state Department of Conservation posted a notice on its website pushing back the enforcement date from April 1 to May 15.

While the ban went into effect at the beginning of March, the enforcement was delayed due to a suit brought on by New York businesses who argue they had little time to prepare.

The suit is essentially on hold as the courts prioritize cases amid the coronavirus crisis and critics claim the ban is a health risk.
