House Committee Cuts Agriculture Spending

The House Committee on Appropriations has approved the Fiscal Year 2012 Agriculture Appropriations bill, which will fund many programs within the U.S. Department of Agriculture and related agencies. While the legislation approved $125.5 billion in discretionary and mandatory funding, cutting more than $7 billion from President Obama's request, ADA will continue to work with House committee members on issues aligned with the Association's mission and values.

Discretionary spending was reduced in the bill by $2.7 billion from last year's funding level, and several amendments will change major advances in nutrition. The bill recommends that the USDA's Food and Nutrition Service propose a new rule for school breakfast and lunch meal requirements. This would remove the nutritional standards passed in the Health, Hunger-free Kids Act of 2010. The committee states that implementing the new standards would cost $7 billion over five years. The committee also directed the USDA to scale back participation in developing guidelines for food marketing to children.
