DENVER -- The Colorado Legislature has passed a bill that prohibits sales of products made with trans fat in public schools' vending machines, cafeterias and elsewhere.

The legislation (SB68) applies to all food and beverages made available on school grounds during the school day and extended school day. Food sold at fundraisers, bake sales and sporting event concessions is exempt from the ban, which would take effect in fall 2013.

The bill was sent to Gov. John Hickenlooper on May 14.

The ban started as the nation's toughest -- after-school bake sales and concession-stand treats were on the original hit list -- but it has been weakened to preserve fundraisers such as cookie sales and to give schools more time to comply. | SEE STORY
