HB 683 (MC) - Commonsense Consumption Act

Bars local governments from regulating the size of soft drinks. Includes tort reform measures to limit liability from lawsuits over free will food consumption (i.e. suing McDonald’s because their burgers made you gain weight.) Civitas believes the conservative position is that government has no businesses regulating food and beverage intake, and that individuals bear responsibility for what they willingly eat and drink.
