Soda Ban

Latino Group Fights New York City Soda Ban

Calls it "short-sighted" and "senseless"


The president of Hispanic Federation, which is supporting a lawsuit against New York City over its controversial soda ban, called the law "short-sighted" and "senseless."

"The reality is – people can still buy multiple sodas." Jose Calderon told Fox News Latino. "If you're going to be serious about addressing issues, we need to bring all different facets together to work collaboratively."

The Hispanic Federation was part of a diverse group that took the law regulating the sale of high-sugar drinks in cups or containers bigger than 16 ounces at bars and restaurants to court for "inconsistent and undemocratic regulation."
