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."
Nomination Of Sylvia Mathews Burwell To Be Secretary Of Health And Human Services—Continued June 4, 2014
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"Our Founders did not want a king. Some Presidents have stepped over the line the Founders intended, but I don’t think any President has gone as far as this one. He has appointed more czars than the Romanovs. He made recess appointments when the Senate was in session. He turned his Education Secretary into the chairman of the national school board. This President has swung the furthest from the kind of elected leaders our Founders envisioned, George Washington modeled, and our Constitution prescribed."
National School Lunch Program April 3, 2014
Ted Poe, R-TX
"Although the USDA recently eliminated the grain and protein limits under the National School Lunch Program, they should have never had that kind of power to begin with."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions April 3, 2014
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 schoolday. In Maine, 40 percent of children qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on household income."
