Boulder to vote on keeping money from sugary drinks tax
BOULDER, Colo. -- Voters in Boulder are being asked whether they want to allow the city to keep extra money raised by a tax on sugar-sweetened beverages. The 2 cent-per-ounce tax approved in 2016 has so far brought in more than $3.2 million for health and nutrition programs for low-income residents and those with chronic diseases and illnesses often linked to sugar consumption.
