So, here is the leg counsel language for Assemblywoman Bonilla’s bill to put a nickel a drink tax on cocktails with the funds slated to be used for Developmental Disability Services and other health programs. I have chatted with her staff that the detail on how the funds get distributed is critical, as the funds are needed now not at some future time and they are willing to talk. We don’t have the bill number, but as soon as we do, I will get it out to you. Her staff are thinking there is the potential for the Assembly Committee to hold a hearing this Wednesday or Thursday ( I mentioned Thursday might be best as we will have huge numbers in town). But they are looking for supporters.
