Statement In Response to Proposed Soda Tax

In response to the recent Soda Tax Bill proposed by Rep. Farias (D- San Antonio), the Texas Beverage Association has released this official statement:

“Representative Farias’ proposed tax on hundreds of soft drinks would directly hurt Texas restaurants, movie theaters, and supermarkets in the state. Texas is a role model throughout America for lower taxes and reasonable regulation can spuring economic growth. Over the past several years, approximately 30 states and cities across the country have proposed beverage taxes, and all have failed. What Texans eat, drink and feed our families is our choice and doesn’t need government control or oversight” – Texas Beverage Association
