Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions February 24, 2015
Susan Collins, R-ME
"School meals play a vital role in the lives of our young people. More than 30 million children participate in the National School Lunch Program every school day. In Maine, 40 percent of children qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on household income."
Student Success Act February 12, 2015
Bradley Byrne, R-AL
"While the other side is always quick to point out the D.C. special interest groups, which stand by their failed approach, the Student Success Act is supported by the National School Boards Association, which is made up of more than 90,000 local school board members. These are the very people who are actually dealing with Federal education policy and how it actually works on the ground every day, and they want a new approach. Democrats and Republicans and these local school boards want a new approach."
School Breakfast Program February 10, 2015
Jim McGovern, D-MA
"During the 2013-2014 school year, 11.2 million students received a healthy school breakfast on the average schoolday. That is an average of 320,000 more students per day who received school breakfasts than the year before. The reports show that more students than ever are participating in the School Breakfast Program and are receiving healthy breakfasts on schooldays. We have made real progress in making sure that students who are eligible receive breakfast. The School Breakfast Program, along with the National School Lunch Program, are critically important antihunger programs that ensure that our most vulnerable children don’t go hungry."

Agriculture, Rural Development, Food And Drug Administration, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2015 June 11, 2014
Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-CA
"While I appreciate Chairman Aderholt’s efforts to fully fund childhood nutrition programs, I strongly oppose this bill because it weakens, unnecessarily, Federal child nutrition standards; rather than allowing USDA to work with schools to help them meet healthier nutrition criteria, this bill undermines the national school meal program by allowing a blanket waiver to any school that says it can’t meet the new standards."
