OC HIGH / STUDENT NEWS AND VIEWS : Junk Food

July 01, 1994| Associated Press

The Senate Agriculture Committee voted last week to drop plans to require the Agriculture Department to help high schools develop policies to ban junk food sales on school grounds until after lunch.

Current regulations prohibit the sale of junk food in school cafeterias during lunch hours and permit school officials to impose additional restrictions on junk food sales.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), author of the original proposal, said it was designed simply to make it clear to local schools that they had the authority to ban junk food on campus if they so desired.
