A Massachusetts mayor is taking inspiration from a controversial New York City proposal to ban large, sugary beverages - and might even want to take it a step further.
Cambridge Mayor Henrietta Davis unveiled a proposal that would outlaw large-size sodas and other sugary drinks in area restaurants to the City Council on Monday.
She‚Äôs also suggesting that city officials consider banning free refills of sugary beverages, which would be a step beyond New York City‚Äôs plan.
‚ÄúOur environment is full of way too many temptations,‚ÄĚ Davis said. ‚ÄúThis is one temptation that isn‚Äôt really necessary.‚ÄĚ
