If New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo gets his way, shoppers in the Empire State won’t have the second option soon.

Cuomo, a Democrat, proposed on Sunday a ban on single-use plastic bags as part of his upcoming executive budget.

He called the bag ban a “bold action” that would “create a cleaner and greener New York for all.”

Cuomo added that there would be exceptions to any ban in an effort to not impact lower-income populations and that distribution of reusable bags would be a part of that same effort.
