it will probably never go in effect, it will get blocked in the state legislation
Do u have any different idea for a signature?

Same reason they cant decide to give you any other item without tax. :-X

My son called 311 to complain, he said its a "bag tax" and was repeatedly corrected that its not a tax only a fee.

I just paid 70 cent Euro to use the bathroom in the Amsterdam Central Station. What am I supposed to do, pee in my pants?

Not a bad rate. Was paper included in that rate?

Reminds me of my first time in Antwerp last year. I saw some lady sitting near the toilet and didn't have the foggiest clue what she was doing there. I went in and out. Later she complained to a local companion about me that I used without paying. She explained that I didn't know and paid up for me.

If you paid with cc dispute the charge & hope they don't ask for it. :)

Why do they have to provide a toilet at all?

I paid $5 for lunch. What was I supposed to do, starve to death?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

In Europe, it's quiet a norm to charge for toilets.

What a shame, you could have bought 14 shopping bags instead and had a few left ovee
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.
