Chicago tax repeal shifts momentum in favor of soda industry
from Crain's Chicago Business
Momentum has shifted in the battle over taxing sugary beverages. Commissioners in Cook County, home of Chicago, voted to repeal a tax on sweetened beverages on Wednesday, less than a year after voting in favor of the measure and only two months after it went into effect. Michigan lawmakers also pushed forward a bill to ban future attempts to enact food and beverage taxes at the local level on Thursday.
