The Suffolk County Legislature Tuesday postponed voting on a bill that would require more retailers to put a price label on almost every item they sell or potentially face fines up to $1,000.

The legislature voted Tuesday to table the bill, which was proposed by County Executive Steve Bellone. It would expand the scope of an existing law, which requires some stores in the county to individually price products on their shelves, from canned vegetables to cleaning products.

Generally, it applies to stores with annual sales exceeding $3 million.
