The New Hampshire House passed two bills to regulate single-use plastics Thursday, furthering an effort by Democrats to crack down on waste from plastic bags and straws.

Members of the House voted largely along party lines to impose a mandatory plastic bag charge for all New Hampshire shoppers.

House Bill 559 would require that New Hampshire stores charge between 10 and 50 cents for plastic bags given to customers at the point of sale. And it would require stores to carry plastic bags of a minimum thickness – 4 one-thousandths of an inch, or mils.
