IRA President & CEO Sam Toia recent co-authored a letter to the Chicago Tribune with John Coli, Jr., President of Teamsters Local 727, calling on Cook County to repeal the penny-per-ounce beverage tax set to take effect on July 1, 2017. 

Sam and John asserted that, "[the beverage tax] is the wrong message to send residents and businesses. Rather than over-tax residents, hurt businesses and put jobs at risk, county commissioners need to create a welcoming environment for all. That starts by repealing the beverage tax."
