Should Virginia impose a 5-cent tax on disposable plastic shopping bags?

The House of Delegates on Tuesday passed (56 to 42) legislation to do so, with revenue going to water quality and litter control programs. Retailers would retain 20 percent of the tax they collect. The Senate and governor also would have to approve the proposal for it to become law.

Depends. Will the tax go to environment cleanup projects or will it go to the stores (they already figure the costs of bags in their pricing scale and add to the goods purchased)? If the stores get the additional tax, then no, if it goes to environmental projects, then yes.
