Dems call for changes to child nutrition bil


House Democrats are pushing for changes to legislation they claim will weaken the first lady’s prized school lunch standards and make it more difficult for low-income and minority children to access meal programs.

In a letter led by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), 111 Democrats asked House Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline (R-Minn.) and ranking member Bobby Scott (D-Va.) to strengthen proposed legislation to reauthorize the 2010 Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act that they say now includes “misguided changes.”

The letter was also addressed to the chairman and ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education, Reps. Todd Rokita (R- Ind.) and Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio).
