This brings back the Lincoln Fast Food Tax that was repealed as a result of LGC 11.40.

I'm not sure I can support this. I feel like this will disproportionately affect lower income areas, especially food deserts where there isn't sufficient access to good affordable healthy food. While the intention to discourage unhealthy eating is a good one, I think the bill as written will have a greater negative affect on some than it will have a positive affect on Lincoln as a whole.

All taxes suck. I'd rather we not add on more of them.

A final vote is beginning.

AYE (any other vote would be a complete and total endorsement of regular consumption of fast food)
