Anti Soda Tax Initiative

In the wake of Seattle’s new tax on sugary beverages, a group backed by millions of dollars from the soda industry will ask voters in November whether to prevent other cities and counties in Washington from following suit. Under Initiative 1634, local governments would no longer be able to impose their own taxes on sodas, other sugary beverages and on food items. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
