Memo

BILL NUMBER:S6695

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state law, in relation to the designation of yogurt as the state snack

PURPOSE: To designate yogurt as the official state snack of New York

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends the State Law by adding a new section 89 to designate yogurt as the official snack of the State of New York.

Section 2 provides that this act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION: Yogurt is a healthy food that tastes great and is a good source of protein, calcium, vitamin B-2, B-12, potassium and magnesium, all nutrients that are an important part of a good diet. Yogurt is also an important economic driver across our state; in fact New York is now the number one processor of yogurt in the country. Increasing demand for milk, the primary component in yogurt, has helped to support and grow our dairy industry and provide important economic growth to our rural communities. New York is now fifth in the nation in milk production, producing over 13 billion pounds in 2012, in part fueled by the demand from yogurt processors.

Both from a health standpoint and economic standpoint, yogurt is particularly suitable as the state snack.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
