Beverage tax considered as part of healthcare bill


(ANSA) - Rome, August 28 - A beverage tax being considered
in Italy as part of a healthcare spending bill could encourage
"sounder lifestyles without harming soft-drink sector earnings,"
Health Minister Renato Balduzzi said Tuesday.
The government says it may propose a tax increase that
could raise the cost of soft drinks by 3 cents per bottle,
simultaneously raising revenues of up to 250 million euros.
Balduzzi said during an interview on state broadcaster
RAI Radio Uno that the higher price was not exorbitant, but was
sufficient to make consumers "reflect about their choices" and
hopefully make healthier ones.
