Please vote "YES" on the Resolution to overturn AB 1838
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a Stockton resident and supporter of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), I am asking you to vote "YES" on the Resolution to overturn AB 1838. While life in California has paused to help mitigate the spread of COVID19, chronic diseases like cancer are not taking a break. During this public health crisis, we are reminded to be vigilant about our health, and the health of our kids and young adults. AB 1838 preempts local governments from enacting important public health measures such as taxes on sugary drinks. Sugary drink taxes can be part of the solution to reduce obesity, create healthier communities and cities should have the ability to implement this strategy.
Local control matters. Sacramento should not prohibit local elected officials from being able to make decisions to improve the health of their community.
Again, I respectfully urge you vote "YES" on the Resolution to overturn AB 1838.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
