Arlington County Asks for Approval from Virginia General Assembly

December 19, 2013

The Arlington County Board is asking the Virginia General Assembly for the ability to charge paper and plastic bag fees at retailers as part of its 2014 legislative package. The board also is asking the General Assembly to fund a WMATA inspector position — which would enforce fares on the future Crystal City Transitway bus and streetcar line to make sure riders purchase tickets before boarding — and to repeal the hybrid vehicle tax. Arlington needs state approval to enact a bag fee. (Sun Gazette)
