SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The city of Santa Fe may look at how to cut down on how much sugar residents consume.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://bit.ly/2e3j4eO) that Mayor Javier Gonzales introduced a resolution Thursday calling for the city manager to “explore active ways of reducing sugar intake.”

The proposal also asks state lawmakers to enact legislation in the next session that deals with the impact of excess sugar consumption among residents statewide.

The city also wants the federal Food and Drug Administration to eliminate fructose from the Generally Recognized as Safe, or GRAS, list.

The resolution must go before three city council committees before it reaches the full council in December.
