A push to ban plastic bag use in Pittsburgh has been delayed until 2022.

City Councilwoman Erika Strassburger moved to delay a vote to advance the legislation on Monday, according to the Post-Gazette.

She had introduced the bill in November.

“We still have many issues to work out through the law department to make it as air tight as possible,” Strassburger said.

After a meeting last week to listen to varying opinions on the bill, Strassburger told council members Monday that the main issues revolve around who is going to enforce the ban; the proper amount of time leading up to enforcement; how to educate the public; and the question of charging a fee vs. banning the bags entirely, the story said.
