Holden Agriculture Bill Progresses in Senate

Assemblymember Chris Holden's legislation to promote California agricultural has been overwhelmingly approved in the Senate Governmental Organization Committee. Holden represents Monrovia. 

AB 199 requires California state agencies to purchase agricultural products from California companies if the price is equal to or less than the lowest out-of-state company. AB 199 also encourages all public schools, school districts, and public colleges to purchase agricultural products within the state.

AB 199 passed on a vote 7 to 0. It now moves to Senate Appropriations Committee.
