SF Voters Get Another Shot at Soda Tax

A measure to tax sugar-sweetened beverages is headed to the ballot in San Francisco’s election this November. Members of the Board of Supervisors are putting a one-cent per ounce tax on sugar-sweetened beverages on the ballot as a city initiative. A Board committee held a public hearing on the initiative, hearing from a long line of public health and community activists supporting the measure. Christopher Martinez reports from San Francisco.
