Senate Agriculture Bill Markup Postponed

2015-09-15

The U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee was scheduled to mark up a replacement for the soon to expire Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 this Thursday, September 17, but the markup has been postponed. The chairman of the Committee, Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS), reports that they are still working with ranking Committee member Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) to come up with bi-partisan legislation.

“I am continuing negotiations with Ranking Member Stabenow to get a bipartisan, budget-neutral agreement to move forward with child nutrition reauthorization. We're nearly at the finish line,” Roberts said in a statement Monday.

SNA staff will continue to monitor progress on the bill and provide updates to SNA members as they are available.

In the meantime, you can help ensure Congress passes a strong 2015 Child Nutrition Reauthorization bill by going to SNA’s Take Action page to send letters to your representatives asking them to sponsor three key child nutrition bills. Don’t forget to share the link with your fellow colleagues so they can participate, too!
