Bronx News Roundup, July 26

The so-called soda tax, which the Paterson administration estimates would add $815 million to the state's badly depleted coffers (and keep NYers healthier) will get another chance at passage in another special legislative session called for Wednesday to deal with the state budget, which is four months late. The measure hasn't fared well in either body of the legislature, but in a press release the Alliance for a Healthier New York says it's glad to see the proposal is "gaining serious momentum." In April, Montefiore Medical Center came out in favor of the tax and the Norwood News had this editorial.
