SB18-013 - Expand Child Nutrition School Lunch Protection Act

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning expanding the grades eligible for the child nutrition school lunch protection program, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.

Current law creates an annual appropriation to provide lunches at no charge to children in state-subsidized early childhood education programs administered by public schools or in kindergarten through fifth grade who would otherwise have to pay for a reduced-price lunch.

The bill extends the grade of eligibility to eighth grade in schools that elect to participate in the expanded program.

The bill authorizes an annual appropriation, including a cap on the amount of the annual appropriation, to cover the expanded grades of eligible children.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
