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.
