South Carolina Common Sense Consumption Act

The General Assembly is currently working on SC HB 3046: Common Sense Consumption Act. At base, this bill is meant to stop the lawsuits based on folks eating Mickey D's and getting fat. According to the preamble:

Act to amend provide that a manufacturer, packer, distributor, carrier, holder, marketer, seller, or an association of one or more of these entities is not subject to civil liability in an action based on a person's purchase or consumption of food or nonalcoholic beverages when liability is based on weight gain, obesity, or a health condition associated with weight gain or obesity resulting from the person's long-term consumption of food or nonalcoholic beverages
