Looks like legislators are trying to pass another questionable bill. Senate Bill 1138 will require prisons to offer inmates “plant-based meals” that are free of meat, dairy, fish, poultry or eggs. The bill’s author, Senator Nancy Skinner of Berkeley, states that her intent to require a vegan menu is because it “will provide an example of healthful eating to the general public.” There’s already specialized foods available for inmates with certain health or medical needs, so SB 1138 is a bit strange and might be a waste of taxpayer money. The California State Legislative analysis says the cost will be hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. We will have to wait and see if the bill passes.
