NEW YORK (AP) - Whether they think the mayor is combating obesity or infringing on their rights, New Yorkers are scheduled to get their say on a proposed ban on large sugary drinks served at restaurants, movie theaters and other eateries.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday that "sugary drink consumption is a key driver of the obesity epidemic," and an estimated 5,800 New Yorkers will die this year because they're obese or overweight.
Meanwhile, about an hour later more than 100 people gathered on the steps of City Hall to protest the proposed ban.
The proposal requires only the approval of the Bloomberg-appointed Board of Health to take effect, although opponents could still sue to block the ban, or they could convince legislators to step in. A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
