A WELL INTENDED LAW by Cook County Dems blocked in Cook County Clerk. I recognize that this sugar beverage tax is more or less designed to create further revenues to balance the Cook County budget. Upon hearing about this, however, I really wanted to view this as a form of social engineering. Using taxes to change consumer behavior. For now at least we'll have to see if Cook County chooses to repeal or more likely tweak this law.
