Dallas to require 5-cent charge per single-use bag

DALLAS (AP) — After Jan. 1, customers will have to pay Dallas retailers 5 cents each for single-use bags.

The new ordinance also would require retailers to register with the city and keep track of the single-use bags they sell. Retailers could still provide free multi-use bags.
