Capitol Fax: Because… Chicago!

What if you did your shopping in the suburbs to avoid the city bag tax only to find out that the state passed its own bag tax? It's been in the news as a proposal so far, and for some it had the added intent of reducing usage of plastic bags in Chicago.
If you're tired off all these taxes then there's this from Rich Miller:
In the end, this bag tax might very well turn out to be more trouble than it’s worth.
What the post is about is passing a statewide bag tax, then allowing Chicago to keep our own bag tax. It seems downstate politicians take an issue with Chicago not being included in this new tax.
