CA soda tax pulled as legislation loses traction

A California assemblyman is pulling the bill he authored which would have imposed a two-cents-per-ounce tax on sugary beverages. The bill’s withdrawal is a win for soda and sugary drink manufacturers. California is a state that often incites nutrition-related changes that eventually become more widespread across the country. If more California cities were to propose and pass soda taxes (as Berkeley already did in 2014), then the push for this type of legislation could become more common.
