COOK COUNTY SODA TAX PASSES

Cook County Commissioners Thursday approved a penny-an-ounce tax on sugar-sweetened beverages after Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle broke a rare tie by voting for the tax. Preckwinkle said the tax will help to balance the county’s books all while improving public health. Opponents of the tax said it may disproportionately affect poorer residents. (Chicago Tribune)
