      Bennett's Food Law Up for Final Knesset Vote on Monday

      The Knesset is scheduled to hold the second and third readings, Monday, on legislation by Economics Minister Naftali Bennett to limit the number of branches that a grocery chain can open in an area.

      Intended to fight monopoly situations, the law will only affect areas where another chain is not present to provide competition and lower prices.
