SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX REPEALED

On Oct. 11, the Cook County Board of Commissioners voted to repeal the notorious sweetened beverage tax. Fifteen of the 17 commissioners voted in favor of the repeal, providing enough support to thwart a possible veto of the ordinance. Shoppers will no longer have to pay the penny-per-ounce tax starting Dec. 1.

SINGLE SHOT ORDINANCE
