Judge Asked to Put NYC Drink Ban on Hold
Critics of New York City’s plan to crack down on the size of sugary drinks have asked a judge to put the rule on hold.
FOX News Radio’s Pat O’Neill reports from New York City:
Groups representing beverage companies and restaurants have filed a court request for an enforcement delay. The rule, pushed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, would bar many eateries from selling high-sugar drinks in containers bigger than 16oz.
(Bloomberg) “In addition to the tragic human toll, obesity is placing a growing burden on public finances. Obesity costs New York City alone over $4 billion in direct medical costs each year.”
Businesses say it’s not right to make them incur the expenses of complying before there’s a decision on their lawsuit seeking to block it entirely. The rule is due to take effect on March 12th.
