The 2-cent tax on plastic bags (“Bill by Pennsylvania lawmaker would tax plastic bags by 2 cents,” Aug. 26 and TribLIVE.com) is a great idea? It should be enacted when they repeal the “temporary” tax to benefit victims of the first Johnstown flood.

I can see 2 cents becoming a quarter, real quick.
