Compliance measures help to strengthen food laws by providing state agencies with an enforcement mechanism. This study examines the provisions states have made to ensure competitive food law compliance, providing important information for state and school decision-makers.
About the Study
Using LEXIS-NEXIS and Westlaw databases, searches were conducted for all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia on statutory laws and administrative codes effective as of January 1, 2013 regarding school competitive food laws. Two study authors analyzed the laws to ensure relevancy.
