CA lawmakers consider bill to remove soda from kids menus

2018-08-20 22:14
A new bill in California will fine restaurants that don't remove soda and juice from kids menus. A written notice for a first offense and a fine of $250 for a second offense is in the bill. Each additional violation would cost $500. The bill cleared the state assembly on Aug.16 and now heads back to the state Senate. The Senate previously supported the measure. Restaurants could still lawfully serve children sugary drinks if their parents requested them. Seven cities in California have enacted similar laws.
