        Legislators have reached an agreement that could lead to a ban on carry-out plastic bags.
        The ban at supermarkets, liquor stores and pharmacies could go into effect by 2016.
        Lawmakers have debated proposals for years.
        They faced opposition from manufacturers that produce billions of plastic shopping bags each year.
        The agreement calls for using 2 million dollars for loans and grants to help those companies retrain workers and convert to making reusable bags.
