I guess it is a food-filled week for lawmakers as well. The Hawaii House Committee of Consumer Protection and Commerce (CPC) has decided to make it a food day for its agenda, today (2/23). The following bills will be heard today:
- HB1545: RELATING TO CONSUMER INFORMATION:
- Would require bread products that have been baked and then frozen to be labeled “previously frozen” and also prohibits bread that has been frozen to be labeled or advertised as “fresh”.
- HB1552, HD1: RELATING TO COFFEE:
- Would restrict the use of the geographic origin of Hawaii-grown coffee on coffee labels.
In addition to those two bills, a joint hearing between CPC and the House Judiciary Committee will hear two bills on sale or distribution of caffeinated beer beverages. The two bills are HB903, HD1 and 904, HD1.
If I listen to any of the testimony it will probably make me hungry, thank goodness for this weekend!
