RADIO: KUOW - The Conversation - Initiative 1107: Repeal The Tax On Soda And Candy
September 24, 2010
Should we repeal the recently enacted candy, pop and bottled–water sales tax? Initiative 1107 would do just that. Proponents of the initiative say the tax represents the long arm of the government reaching into your grocery cart. Opponents say the loss of revenue would mean even more cuts for schools and social programs. We'll hear from both sides. How will you vote? Call 800.289.5869 or email "The Conversation.
