Rules proposed on carryout bags

The proposed rules from the Department of the Environment published in the February 5 DCR are designed to implement the provisions of the "Anacostia River Clean-Up & Protection Act."   According to the notice,
The proposed regulations explain how DDOE will implement and enforce the requirements of the Act.   While the proposed regulations closely track the language of the Act, certain provisions of the Act required further explication, and the regulations set forth how DDOE intends to implement and enforce the Act.   These proposed regulations do not set forth the procedures through which the Office of Tax and Revenue, or the Department of Motor Vehicles will implement and enforce requirements of the Act that are within their jurisdictions.

Those who want to comment on the proposed rules should file comments in writing not later than 30 days after the publication of the notice in the DC Register.   Details about commenting are in the notice.
