US Food Policy and Obesity Legislation Database

Yale University's Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity has launched an online database that monitors federal and state legislation related food policy and obesity.

In addition to bill updates and bill tracking, there is a link to congressional lobbying that allows you to see who is lobbying for what and how much they are spending on it, too.

You can search by client, such as the Coca-Cola Corporation or General Mills, or you can identify bills by a particular issue and then click on the link provided to see the congressional lobbying related to that bill.

Although it only goes back until 2009, this database is updated regularly.
