A bill to create an infant formula stockpile for the state of California prepared for Committee discussion this week following Committee placement last week.

Assembly Bill 228, authored by freshman Assemblywoman Lori Wilson (D-Suisun City), would require both the State Department of Public Health and the Office of Emergency Services to stockpile infant formula, as well as establish procurement, management, and distribution of infant formula during future shortages in California. In addition, a new Committee, the Infant Formula Advisory Committee, would be established to make recommendations on the new program.
