Santa Fe Rejects Soda Tax That Would Support Pre-K

Voters in Santa Fe, N.M., have rejected a 2-cents-per-ounce tax on distributors of sodas and other sugary beverages which, if passed, would have helped support prekindergarten within Santa Fe Public Schools. The proposed tax was estimated to have been one of the nation’s highest of its kind, projected to generate about $7.7 million in its first year, in preparation for use starting in the summer of 2018.
