SF Officials Talk of Taxing Sodas

San Francisco officials are talking again about trying to improve residents' health and raise money for government coffers by taxing soda and other sweetened drinks. Four city lawmakers are announcing legislation that would impose a 2 cent-per-ounce tax on soft, sports, and energy drinks. If passed by the full board, the measure would go before local voters for approval or rejection in November. Officials estimate it could generate as much as $31 million a year.
