New Suffolk County Bag Law Spawns Dangerous Protest

Lake Ronkonkoma News

As if Lake Ronkonkoma had not been mistreated enough, there is yet another looming crisis, thanks to a new law in Suffolk County. Starting at the beginning of 2018, merchants in Suffolk County are required to charge a 5 cent “sin tax” on take-away bags, both plastic and paper. Widespread opposition to the law has caused some individuals to take matters into their own hands, with disastrous consequences for Lake Ronkonkoma.
