Just last week Anchorage implemented a plastic bag ban on the retails sale of goods in the Municipality of Anchorage. But now one Anchorage Assembly member says he plans to make some changes.

This has to do with some people who say they didn't know they would be charged for paper bags at fast food restaurants. Some people say they were surprised to see a 10 cent charge for a paper bag, which they say they got for free prior to the plastic bag ban.

Anchorage Assemblyman Christoper Constant says it's not practical to hand a fast food employee a reusable bag in place of a paper bag.
