PASADENA, CA -- A bill that would restrict vending selections on California state property passed the state Assembly's Business and Professional Committee on May 3 and has moved on to its appropriations committee. The California Automatic Vending Council said it is continuing its effort to oppose the bill.

The bill, designated AB 727, introduced by assembly member Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles), would require that 100% of products in vending machines on state property comply with the nutritional standards outlined in state law. Current law requires that 35% of products in vending machines on state property comply with the standards. The proposed 100% requirement would take full effect by 2016.

CAVC opposed the legislation when it was heard by the Assembly's Business and Professional Committee on April 12, and was successful in stopping the bill from moving forward with a vote in that hearing.

A lobbyist representing CAVC testified at both hearings in strong opposition to provisions in the bill, arguing that the 100% requirement was entirely unworkable and would eliminate a vending operator's ability to provide snacks and drinks to state employees that they request and desire.
