Dairy Foods Association Says U.S. Congress Close To Passing Child Nutrition Bill

November 12, 2010: 01:18 PM EST

With two key Democrats declaring support for child nutrition reauthorization legislation (Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, S.3307), the International Dairy Foods Association says it is getting more likely that the House will pass the legislation during the lame duck session. Action on the bill stalled in September when some House members expressed reservations about how the bill would be funded. But with time running out, the House is not likely to press for a compromise with the Senate, which passed the measure in August . IDFA says it has worked with the National Milk Producers Federation and other food and agriculture organizations to urged quick passage before the current congressional session ends. The bill provides an additional $4.5 billion over 10 years to federal child nutrition programs including school lunch.
