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.
Sheâ€™s also suggesting that city officials consider banning free refills of sugary beverages, which would be a step beyond New York Cityâ€™s plan.
â€śOur environment is full of way too many temptations,â€ť Davis said. â€śThis is one temptation that isnâ€™t really necessary.â€ť
