  • New Mexico City Seeks Sugary Drink Tax

    The Associated Press reports that voters in New Mexico's capital city have until Tuesday to decide whether to impose a new tax on sugary drinks. The new tax would raise the cost of a can of soda by nearly 25 cents. The citywide tax on distributors would provide Santa Fe an estimated $7.5 million in its first year to expand early childhood education to roughly 1,000 children. If approved, Santa Fe will join U.S. cities from Philadelphia to San Francisco that have adopted soda taxes in recent years. The proposal is being decided as working parents living just above poverty in Santa Fe struggle to pay the market rate for child care.
