Cook County Board delays showdown over soda tax until October 10, and other Chicago news

  • Cook County Board delays showdown over soda tax until October 10
  • The Cook County Board of Commissioners stopped short of repealing the controversial penny-per-ounce sweetened beverage tax Wednesday, but it did send a repeal measure to committee, which will lead to a battle October 10. Cook County commissioner Richard Boykin is proposing "cutting spending and eliminating vacant positions" in place of the six-week-old tax, which added 68 cents to the price of a two-liter bottle and 72 cents to a six-pack, DNAinfo Chicago reports. Boykin is considering a run against Cook County Board president Toni Preckwinkle, who's spearheaded the fight for the tax. [DNAinfo Chicago]
