Montgomery County Council President Roger Berliner has spent months getting in the habit of taking reusable bags on shopping trips, in preparation for the county's 5-cent tax on paper and plastic shopping bags that goes into effect Sunday.
"I don't think this is a matter that should be [passed or rejected] in 5-4 votes," said Mr. Berliner, a Democrat. "I think we need to be in much more consensus as a community."
Council President Roger Berliner acknowledged that a "strong majority" of residents oppose the curfew but said it has drawn such passionate responses from both sides that the council should take more time to debate the issue.
