No Soda Tax for Philly!

June 16th, 2011

The City Council of Philadelphia reached a deal last night, but one that does not include the soda tax Mayor Nutter had proposed.  The Council will still be able to raise $53 million for the local school district but it will not come from the 2 cent-per-ounce tax on sugar-sweetened beverages.
