Diet drinks added to Seattle mayor's soda-tax proposal, upping revenue estimates
The Seattle Times

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is slightly reducing the per-ounce amount charged by his proposed soda tax while adding diet pop to the list of beverages covered by the tax.Those are the main changes in the legislation the mayor is sending to the City Council on Thursday.Under Murrayâs initial plan, announced during his State of the City address in February, distributors of sugary drinks would have paid 2 cents per ounce.The revised tax would cover sodas such as Coke and Pepsi, energy and sports drinks such as Red Bull and Gatorade, fruit drinks such as Sunny D, sweetened teas such as those sold by Arizona, and bottled coffees such as those sold by Starbucks.But unlike the initial plan, the new proposal would cover not only sugary drinks but all sweetened beverages, including diet drinks â beverages with noncaloric sweeteners.
