The state is waiting to see whether Gov. Phil Murphy will sign a bill that would put a 5 cent fee on every paper and plastic bag given to shoppers.

It is estimated that the would raise more than $23 million, which would be used for a lead abatement fund.

This has become one of the most talked-about proposed laws in New Jersey. Many oppose what they see as a new regressive tax. Others, particularly environmentalists who have been campaigning against plastics for years, believe the state should just ban plastic bags.

The Townsquare News Network is presenting a list showing how every lawmaker in the state Senate and Assembly voted. Find your legislator and their vote below.

The Assembly passed the bill on June 21 by a narrow vote of 41-32 with six members not voting. It was a similar case in the Senate with a 23-16 passage.

Support mostly fell along party lines, with Democrats providing most votes in favor.

But some lawmakers bucked their party.  In South Jersey's 1st District, all three Democrats voted no, including state Sen. Jeff Van Drew, D-Cape May, who is running for a seat in Congress.

State Sen. Dawn Marie Addiego, who represents Burlington, Atlantic and Camden Counties in District 8, was one of the Republicans to vote in favor of the fee. Meanwhile, all three Democrats who represent District 11 in Monmouth County, a district held by Republicans just a few years ago, voted against the measure.

Monmouth County was one of the most divided on the fee, with Republican state Sen. Declan O'Scanlon voting in favor of it while the Republican Assembly members from District 13 voted against it. In District 16, Republican state Sen. Christopher "Kip" Bateman, known for siding with environmental causes, voted yes while Democrats Roy Freiman and Andrew Zwicker voted against it in the Assembly.

Other "no" votes on Democratic side came from state Sen. Nicholas Sacco from District 32 in Union County, and state Sen. Joseph A. Lagana and Assembly members Lisa Swain and P. Christopher Tully in District 38.
