A week and a half ago, the Senate Health Committee buried a measure to put health warning labels on soda bottles and cans.

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.

On Wednesday April 29, the California Senate Health Committee will vote on SB 203, the soda warning label bill. This legislation, when passed, will do for all Californians what cigarette warning labels did half a century ago – provide consumers with the information necessary to turn back the tide on a self-inflicted wave of illness that is entirely preventable.
