Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant (R) has signed legislation (S.B. 2687) prohibiting food regulation at the local level. Dubbed the “anti-Bloomberg” bill by some lawmakers and media outlets, the new law reserves for the state legislature the power to regulate consumer incentive items, implement menu and vending machine labeling rules, and set other restrictions on the sale of certain foods and beverages where not preempted by federal law. Additional details about the measure appear in Issues 472 and 475 of this Update.
