Legislation Database

The legislation database tracks federal policies from 2010-2019 and all state policies related to obesity and diet-related diseases in issue areas including access to healthy food, breastfeeding, farms and gardens, school nutrition and physical activity, food assistance programs, marketing/advertising to children, menu and package labeling, and food and beverage taxes.

As of January 1, 2020:
We are no longer tracking federal legislation. You can find comprehensive information on all federal bills at https://www.congress.gov/. Proposed and enacted federal legislation from 2010-2019 will remain on Rudd’s database. We will only update the database with enacted state legislation. If you are interested in proposed state legislation, please contact Sally Mancini at sally.mancini@uconn.edu.
