SAN FRANCISCO — Would you pay a tax for sodas and other sugary drinks? San Francisco is going to let voters in the city decide by putting a sugar tax on the November ballot.

If the tax is approved, people would have to pay an extra 2 cents per ounce for sugary drinks.

The city could collect up to $50 million, which would go to support underfunded programs such as school lunches, physical education and after-school programs.
