There are some plastic bag taxes in place already, generally in the 5-10 cent range. Washington DC began a 5 cent tax on plastic bags in January, and the number of bags handed out went from the 2009 monthly average of 22.5 million to 3 million. The tax also raised $150,000 in revenue.
Some stores already charge you for your bags, though you may not realize it, because they actually give you money back when you bring your own bags. Whole Foods gives you $0.05 when you dont use one of their bags, so in a sense its a 5 cent tax if you choose to use a plastic bag.
