Legislative bulge battles

Several skirmishes have recently surfaced in Colorado about the level of government involvement in health-specific legislation, including:
Colorado lawmakers passed a bill this year that bans trans-fats in school meals, beginning Sept. 1, 2013.
Last year, Colorado Democrats and Republicans sparred over whether to repeal a 2.9 percent sales tax on soda that raises $12.3 million every year. Meanwhile, there has been debate whether to support an increased tax on sugary drinks – after states such as New York, Hawaii and Massachusetts, which already have proposed taxes on soda and other drinks.
