California State Senate: End the Cycle of Obesity: Pass SB-622-- The Soda Tax!

This petition had 216 supporters


Childhood obesity is a problem that affects over a quarter of California's adults and 17% of the children. Sugary drinks are a major factor in the obesity epidemic, and if we can reduce the number of drinks sold and thus consumed, we can reduce the number of overweight and obese people. The American Beverage Association believes that this bill will be a success, they are airing commercials on major networks and using the media to try and overturn the momentum that this bill is gaining. A Harvard Study even found that a soda tax would reduce consumption by 10%. Let California seize this opportunity to reduce obesity! Help us in our support of the Soda Tax, SB-622!
