Update: Farm Bill and Pizza Sauce

A bipartisan group of 44 Senators sent a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), calling on them to bring the Farm Bill to the Senate floor. Agriculture Committee leaders want to see action on the Farm Bill before the break for Memorial Day; however, there are no indications from the Senate leaders that the bill would come up next week.

In other agriculture news, Rep. Jared Polis (Colo.) introduced new legislation to reverse Congress' decision to define pizza sauce as a vegetable in school meals. The SLICE (School Lunch Improvements for Children’s Education) Act would restore the U.S. Department of Agriculture's authority to implement healthful standards for pizza in public schools by allowing the USDA to:

  • Accurately count ⅛ cup of tomato sauce as ⅛ of a cup instead of a half-cup, which qualifies pizza as a vegetable
  • Implement science-based sodium reduction targets
  • Set a whole grain requirement.
