Area lawmakers have expressed their exasperation over renewed efforts to repeal Philadelphia’s soda tax. State lawmakers have moved to final consideration House Bill 2241, which is aimed at halting the city’s tax on sweetened beverages, but opponents like state Rep. Donna Bullock (D-195) said the consequences are more far-reaching than simply taking away a levy on soft drinks. “It is frustrating that once again Philadelphia is being held hostage by Harrisburg politicians who don’t share our values,” she said.
