Retailers applaud governor’s bag moratorium

Retail Council of New York State President and CEO Ted Potrikus this evening issued the following statement:

Retailers in New York City and throughout the state thank Governor Cuomo for making the difficult decision to tap on the brakes on the New York City plastic bag fee.

We respect the complexity of the decision and we pledge to work constructively with him and with state lawmakers as they seek a statewide, comprehensive response to environmental concerns.

Thank you, Governor Cuomo.
