Shoppers soon to be charged 7 cents per bag in Chicago

CHICAGO - Shoppers in Chicago will soon have to pay a checkout tax of 7 cents per bag at all retailers in the city unless they bring their own bags to stores.

The tax, which starts Wednesday, is the city's latest attempt to cut down on the use of disposable bags, which are usually given for free at checkout and often end up in landfills.

The new tax replaces a ban on lightweight plastic bags, which city officials say wasn't as effective as they had hoped.

The city says it is up to retailers whether to pass the tax along to the customer or absorb the cost themselves. Many stores, including Walgreens, Jewel-Osco, and CVS Pharmacy, have said shoppers will pay the bill.

Whole Foods, Target and Mariano's will continue providing incentives for shoppers to bring their own bags by offering 5 to 10 cents back for each reusable bag.

The tax applies to disposable paper bags in addition to plastic bags.

The city will be handing out up to 25,000 free, reusable bags outside seven CTA stations around the city on Wednesday evening.

SOUTH HOLLAND - Illinois State Police said a $1,000 reward is available for information leading to the arrest of a suspect wanted for attacking a trooper in the Chicago suburbs.

State police said the plain-clothes trooper was in an unmarked squad car trying to question someone at a toll plaza on Interstate 294 in South Holland on Nov. 7. Police said the suspect approached the trooper with a handgun when the trooper identified himself as a police officer. Police said there was a struggle over the gun and the offender fired at least one bullet before fleeing.

The officer wasn't shot but was hurt and is still recovering from injuries.

Authorities searched for the suspect after the incident but he wasn't located. Illinois State Police have partnered with Cook County Crime Stoppers, which is offering the reward.
