Some Rhode Island lawmakers are considering a tax on many of your favorite drinks like sodas, juice drinks, teas and sports drinks. That would be on top of the existing 7% sales tax on beverages in Rhode Island. These taxes will substantially increase our grocery costs, at a time that we can’t afford it.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Rhode Islanders, concerned citizens, businesses and community organizations that oppose new beverage taxes. The coalition aims to send a strong message that in this tough economy we can’t afford to pay additional taxes on our grocery items.
IMPORTANT: We are on a strict deadline and would NOT like to wait until the end of the contest like most of you designers like to do. Even your design may be better, we WILL pick the first sufficient design that gets submitted!
