business news in context, analysis with attitude

Two separate bills that would protect food and beverage companies from so-called "obesity lawsuits" are working their way through the Ohio state legislature.

Sen. Larry Mumper, who is sponsoring of one of the bills, said it is designed to promote "personal responsibility," not protect Ohio businesses.
KC's View:
