SALEM, OR -- A proposed bill would put calorie limits on snacks and drinks sold through vending machines in government buildings in Oregon.

House Bill 3403 would only allow snacks with 200 calories or less, and entrées with 450 calories or less, to be sold in machines. It would also limit the number of calories from fats and sugars in vended products, and ban trans fat in them.

The only drinks allowed for unrestricted sale through vending machines would be water, coffee, tea and some types of milk and juices. Other drinks would be limited to 40 calories per container.

Oregon's House Health Care Committee heard public testimony on the bill last week. It will reconvene later this month to decide whether to put the bill up for a vote in Oregon's House of Representatives.

A similar law is already in place in Oregon schools.
