After a hearing yesterday regarding California's AB 1252 — the food-worker glove mandate — legislators on the state's Assembly Health Committee unanimously voted to repeal the controversial bill. Assemblyman Richard Pan, who drafted a proposal for the glove-law repeal, said the language of the bill would be changed, requiring restaurant employees to "minimize bare-hand contact" with uncooked food. In the meantime, lawmakers will continue to "revisit the issue." [AP] [Photo: Kondor83/Shutterstock]
