SB 203

SB 203 Dies in Senate Health Committee

  • Posted on: Apr 30 2015

 

We are extremely disappointed to report that the sugary drink warning label bill, SB 203 did not make it out of the California Senate Health Committee. With only four out of nine senators on the committee voting in favor of the bill, SB 203 is now dead. Showing a frustrating lack of leadership, Committee Chair Ed Hernandez and Senators Isadore Hall, Richard Roth and Janet Nguyen abstained from voting. Senator Jim Nielsen voted against the bill.
