It isn’t everything anybody wanted, but it’s better than nothing.  Facing criticism from Allegheny County citizens, County Council passed a budget this week which reduced the Drink Tax from 10% to 7%, representing a year’s worth of hard work by advocates working to reduce or eliminate this harmful tax.  Here are some stories from the press concerning this news:

We applaud the county for this action; however this is only the first step.  We will continue to pursue the repeal of this irresponsible and unfair tax.  And we will maintain a vigilant oversight on how these monies are used.

And so The Whiskey Rebellion II continues…
