California soda tax bill pulled without a vote | The Sacramento Bee

Citing soaring obesity and diabetes rates, public health officials and physicians call the ubiquity of sugary drinks a leading menace to healthy living. Many evoke battles against the tobacco industry in warning that beverage companies are concealing the risk of their product.

Year after year, that campaign has met defeat in Sacramento. Bills to tax soft drinks have repeatedly failed, as have efforts to label drinks with warnings of health hazards.

Thanks. God bless.
