A bill that would have limited the use of antibiotics by licensed veterinarians to prevent and control disease in animal agriculture was defeated by the California Senate Wednesday afternoon. Fifteen Senators voted in favor of the bill and 20 voted against it.

Bill SB416 would have required all school districts in California to make every effort to purchase poultry and meat products that had not been treated with non-therapeutic antibiotics.

The original bill prohibited schools from serving poultry or meat products from animals that had been treated with antibiotics at any time during the life of the animal.
