Feds crack down on bake sales!
As part of Michelle Obama's healthy school eating initiative, the child nutirtion bill gives the government power to limit school bake sales and other fundraisers!
Republicans, notably Sarah Palin, and public school organizations decry the bill as an unnecessary intrusion on a common practice often used to raise money. "This could be a real train wreck for school districts," Lucy Gettman of the National School Boards Association said Friday, a day after the House cleared the bill. "The federal government should not be in the business of regulating this kind of activity at the local level."
