California antibiotic bills include feed provisions

One bill — S.B. 770, which was sponsored by California Sen. Tony Mendoza and had strong support from the California Grain & Feed Assn. (CGFA) — allows the California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) to retain authority over the medicated Feed Inspection Program.
