Push At State Capitol To Repeal Soda Pop Tax

DENVER (CBS4)- There is a push at the State Capitol to repeal the sales tax on soda pop. Lawmakers allowed the tax to go back into effect last year.

State Representative David Balmer, (R) Centennial, has introduced a bill that would again remove the tax. He said singling out soft drinks increases grocery bills in tough times, and intrudes on people’s personal choices.

Balmer said the tax is unnecessary for the preservation of public health and safety.
