A proposed bill on the House floor would add an additional 2% sales tax on alcohol.

The money would go to Colorado’s Children's Basic Health Plan, to help insure the estimated 180,000 uninsured children in Colorado.

If the legislature approves the measure, voters would be asked to decide on the issue in the November general election.
