Noem To Introduce School Nutrition Bill

Noem To Introduce School Nutrition Bill

Congresswoman Kristi Noem has unveiled a new school nutrition bill that reduces federal mandates on school lunch standards, which have been a point of contention since their implementation at the beginning of the 2012 school year.  The announcement was made on Monday at a Noem event in Chester.  The Reducing Federal Mandates on School Lunch Act will be introduced next week.  The legislation would give administrators flexibility on some of the rules that have increased costs for school districts.  Noem will host a roundtable discussion with community leaders in Huron on Tuesday afternoon from 3:30 until 4:30 at the Crossroads Convention Center.
