NFIB-backed legislation that will forbid any local unit of government from taxing food and beverages is now Public Act (PA) 133 of 2017. Cities and counties around the country have been enacting so called “pop” or “soda” taxes on beverages that they deem to be “unhealthy”. While local governments and advocates of these taxes want everyone to believe that they are acting in the interest of public health and safety, the real motivation is to raise revenue to fund more local government growth and bureaucracy. This new law will prevent that kind of bad public policy from happening in Michigan.
