Statement on final passage of bill to name yogurt New York's official snack
Albany, N.Y. – The New York State Assembly has passed legislation, S.6695, to designate yogurt as the official snack for the State of New York.
State Senator Michael H. Ranzenhofer has issued the following statement:
“I commend the New York State Assembly for passing my legislation to name yogurt the official snack of New York State although fourth-graders at Byron-Bergen Elementary School deserve all of the credit. From initially suggesting the idea to traveling to the State Capitol this morning, these students deserve high marks for their efforts to get this legislation passed by both houses of the State Legislature. I am hopeful that the bill will be signed into law when it is delivered to the Governor’s desk.”
