Mississippi's governor is poised to sign legislation — referred to (at least by NPR) as the "Anti-Bloomberg Bill" — that would ban local governments from regulating menu calorie counts, portion sizes, or "consumer incentive items" (e.g., Happy Meal toys) at restaurants and in vending machines. Mississippi has a solid winning streak going and it doesn't need anyone mucking it up.
