Happy Meal Ban Hinges on Swing Supe Bevan Dufty

Supervisor Eric Mar's attention-grabbing plan to mandate only acceptably nutritious restaurant meals be permitted to come with toys — complete with a “multigrain amendment” — yesterday cleared a Board of Supervisors committee.

The full board will vote on the measure on Oct. 19. Given the composition of the board, chances of passage are about as good as the Hamburglar saying “robble robble.” But, with a mayoral veto promised by Gavin Newsom, eight votes are required for an override. Once again, it all comes down to Supervisor Bevan Dufty. We reached the supervisor this morning.
