GPHCC Members’ Response to
Proposed Sugary Drinks Tax

On March 3, 2016, Mayor Jim Kenney presented to City Council the first budget of his administration. It included the implementation of a tax on sugary drinks that would fund debt service on a bond issued to expand Pre-K, to implement the Community Schools program, and for improvements to libraries and recreation centers, among other initiatives.

In an effort to learn the opinion of our members, the Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GPHCC) performed a focus group and surveyed its members. On April 7, 2016, we convened a group of 37 business owners that would likely be affected by the proposed tax on sugary drinks and this was followed by an on-line/telephonic survey to all our members administered the week of May 9th.
