Is New York returning to sanity? After an all out assault on people’s choices by Bloomberg, a judge has invalidated the soda ban. Next up is the gun control legislation by Cuomo.
A judge has invalidated New York City’s soda ban, saying that the limits on sugary drinks are not legal, according to CNBC.
“A state judge has blocked New York City from moving forward with Mayor Bloomberg’s large sugary drink ban, a major defeat for the mayor,” tweets Wall Street Journal City Hall reporter Michael Howard Saul.
Bloomberg’s new sugary drink regulations are “fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences,” the judge wrote, according to the WSJ. “The simple reading of the rule leads to the earlier acknowledged uneven enforcement even within a particular city block, much less the city as a whole … the loopholes in this rule effectively defeat the state purpose of the rule.”
