Berkeley Taking Soda Tax to Its Voters

July 2, 2014

The San Francisco Bay Area city of Berkeley will vote in November whether to impose a tax on soda.

The Berkeley City Council voted Tuesday night to put a measure on the ballot that would impose a penny-per-ounce tax on soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages such as energy drinks. Diet sodas and juice would be exempted.
