Governor Bryant signed the so-called "Anti-Bloomberg Bill" into law earlier this week.
It prevents Mississippi counties, districts and towns from banning food based on its nutritional information.
It also stops them from enacting rules that would cap portion sizes.
We looked at it and that's not at the top of my list but it's something I've told communities let's not have this patchwork of what we tell people their calorie intake ought to be. I don't think it's the governments business to tell a business you can only sell this many ounces of soft drink, you can't sell Hostess twinkies, maybe you can't sell McDonald's cheeseburgers. We should not be in the business of regulating it. We ought to be in the business of responsibility for health care" said Governor Bryant.
The "Anti-Bloomberg" name was inspired by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's effort to regulate sales on large sugary drinks.
