Cook County Beverage Tax

On the heels of being hit with a 32% income tax hike, the residents of Cook County were recently saddled with a costly tax on soda and other sweetened beverages. House Republicans have filed two bills, HB 4082 and HB 4084, which would repeal this tax.

Do you support or oppose the Cook County “Pop Tax” that imposes a new 1 cent per ounce tax on soda and other sweetened beverages sold in Chicago and Cook County?
