FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – The Fort Collins City Council voted Tuesday night to repeal the 5 cent fee charged to shoppers for using disposable bags.

The fee was supposed to go into effect next spring, but opponents started a petition drive to get enough signatures to put the plan up for a public vote.

Opponents collected about 2,600 signatures.

One councilman told The Coloradoan newspaper the petition drive was enough to convince him to repeal the law.
