ST. PAUL, Minnesota -- A new bill in Minnesota would slap a sales tax on snack items.

Prices would go up on everything from chips to chocolate to cookies. Twenty-four states already have a similar law on the books.

Opponents say the system is too difficult to set up, especially for small store owners. They're already running ads against the bill.

If passed, the state would tax small bags of potato chips and similar snacks in eight-ounce servings.
