Should Evanston Regulate Plastic Shopping Bags?

The City Council is taking up the question at its Monday meeting.

Should Evanston Regulate Plastic Shopping Bags?
The Evanston City Council will discuss whether it should "reduce the environmental impacts of plastic shopping bags" at its Monday meeting.

This comes on the heels of the City of Chicago's vote last month to ban plastic bags.

Evanston last took up the issue of plastic bags in 2011, but didn't enact any regulations due to opposition. 

What do you think: Should the city ban, tax or otherwise regulate plastic bags to reduce their environmental impact?
